Since one month I expierence a message that I should renew my code signing certificate and today I thought it is time to stop this message.


Because I could not find anything about renewing the certificate in Mountain Lion I used the KB-article that discribes the process for Lion.


after that I get this in at my terminal:


sudo /Applications/ --recreate-CA-signed-certificate ' Signierungszertifikate für Code' 'IntermediateCA_MYSERVER.DOMAIN.DE_1' 7D3E2458


when I press return I get this:


/Applications/ Cannot find the certificate: Signierungszertifikate für Code


I checked it again and again - I cannot find any typo or something like that - so maybe Mountain Lion wants to renew the certificate in a different way or certadmin cannot cope with german "Umlaute" - "für" - in english for - but I did not gave this name it was given by the system when I setup the server one year ago.


Every hint is welcome, bye
