26.7.1. Changing the CRL Update Interval

The CRL file is automatically generated by the IdM CA every four hours by default. To change this interval:
  1. Stop the CA server.
    # systemctl stop pki-tomcatd@pki-tomcat.service
  2. Open the /var/lib/pki/pki-tomcat/conf/ca/CS.cfg file, and change the ca.crl.MasterCRL.autoUpdateInterval value to the new interval setting. For example, to generate the CRL every 60 minutes:
    If you update the ca.crl.MasterCRL.autoUpdateInterval parameter, the change will become effective after the next already scheduled CRL update.
  3. Start the CA server.
    # systemctl start pki-tomcatd@pki-tomcat.service
