    You need to connect to GW via SSH

    use impcfg

    Manage SecureSphere Gateway > Unregister gateway

    Manage SecureSphere Gateway > Register gateway

    Manage SecureSphere Gateway > Start Gateway

    Hello Rakesh,

    Thank you for your post, please refer to the following steps to un-register and register back the gateway to MX.

    ·        Go to GW CLI and run the following commands:

    impctl gateway stop

    impctl gateway unregister

    impctl gateway register

    impctl gateway start

    ·        Verify with your browser or using this command: openssl s_client -connect <GW-IP>:443 | openssl x509 -noout -dates

    Thanks Syed for the great information. 

    Kindly help to advise on below. Appreciate your response. 

    1- May I know the steps you provided work for all types of deployments or any deviations, example ->

       a) if GWs are in HA

       b) if GWs are in cluster 

    2- so every time when GW cert is about to expire do we need to perform the same steps to renew cert in GW? 

    impctl gateway stop

    impctl gateway unregister

    impctl gateway register

    impctl gateway start

    3-After every patch, upgrade, does the GW cert auto renew?

    Hello Rakes,

    Yes same process for HA and cluster, it will failover(services) when we restart one of the gateway and yes when you upgrade the certificate will update automatically for default certificates.
