Hello our Netwitness infrastructure is getting quite old and was installed over 5 years ago.

As a result the Puppet CA certificate and all the agent certificates are due to expire in about 2 months time.


When running puppet agent -t I get the error:

Warning: Certificate 'Puppet CA: 7e76ca89-a38d-4759-a5ad-cbabdd122b4a' will expire on 2019-11-16T13:53:56GMT

What are the steps needed to renew the CA and the agent certificates?
