    I am using EJBCA 4.0.2 with MySQL and Jboss5.

    I am not able to renew a user certificate validity with same private/public key.

    I followed the below steps to renew user certificate:

    a) Went to 'Search/Edit End Entities' and clicked on 'Edit End Entity' of the end entity in question.
    b) Set status to NEW and clicked on Saved.
    c) Then, I downloaded the certificate using 'Create Keystore' link in Public web interface.

    But when i inspected the certificate details from 'View Certificates' link in  'Search/Edit End Entities'  i found that the public key has changed.

    Can please some one help me on how to renew the certificate validity by retaining the same private/public key.

    Thanks in advance.

    To do it this way either requires that you use a client-side request or use the EJBCA key-recovery mechanism.

    I assume that you are dealing with encrytion keys?  Otherwise key-recovery is only makings things more complex.
