keytool error: java.lang.Exception: Certificate not imported, alias already exists

What if this is seen:

# keytool -importcert -keystore /path/to/my.keystore -storepass CorrectPass -trustcacerts -file ca.crt -noprompt -alias MyAlias
keytool error: java.lang.Exception: Certificate not imported, alias <MyAlias> already exists
#

Then you may do this to remove the CERT if you plan to redo it.

# keytool -delete -keystore /path/to/my.keystore -storepass CorrectPass -alias rhq-ca
#

Followed by this to see it gone:

# keytool –list -keystore /path/to/my.keystore -storepass CorrectPass

Keystore type: JKS
Keystore provider: SUN

Your keystore contains 0 entries

Cheers,
