Run the below command to generate new certificate request

Press Enter


Get Distinguished name from SAP Market place site


Click on Apply


Copy Distinguished Name:

Press Enter


Click on Continue from market place on Request certificate for SAPROUTER


Click on continue


Open the file: <drive>:\usr\sap\saprouter\certreq1 with notepad

Copy text from this file and paste the text to the request certificate page

Press the Request Certificate


Click on Request Certificate


Select the generated certificate text and copy and make a text file srcert.txt in

<drive>:\:\usr\sap\saprouter directory

/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/16_180062.pngRename the srcert.txt to srcert only


Install the certificate in our saprouter by running

sapgenpse.exe import_own_cert -c srcert -p local.pse


create the credentials for the SAProuter with command

<drive>:\usr\sap\saprouter>sapgenpse seclogin -p local.pse -O <saprouter user>


This will create a file called cred_v2 in the same directory.

Check if the certificate has been imported correctly using following command

Sapgenpse get_my_name -v -n Issuer


Restart your saprouter service.

Check Router Validity again
