Old IBM Apple APNS Push Certificate used for Verse expired on Friday 03.02.17

 6 Februar 2017 14:03:25
If you are still running an older IBM Traveler version as 9.0.1.15 like 9.0.1.14, you will notice since Friday that the Push Notification for IBM Verse for iOS are no longer working.

You will see many error messages on the console:

06.02.2017 11:59:08   Traveler: SEVERE  *system Couldn't send message after 3 retries, Message(Id=692311; Token=8C720F7F9B96D30C184445840EF0D0D925BC8C269618C7523E0B98EE9B61A03E; Payload={"aps":{"badge":14,"content-available":1,"alert":"E-Mail von test.de","sound":"v)"},"LGUID":"2068982","FLAGS":"1001","account":"1"}) Exception Thrown: javax.net.ssl.SSLException: Received fatal alert: internal_error


The reason is that the APNS certificate used for IBM Verse for iOS expired on Friday 03th Feb. 2017. The certificate is part of the Traveler installation package. And the IBM Verse APNS P12 file of Traveler 9.0.1.14 is expired.

To solve it you will have two options:

1. Option: Move on to Traveler 9.0.1.15

Update your server to the latest version, but have in mind that there is still a known issue:
hotfix-via-pmr-available-for-traveler-9.0.1.15-standalone-issue.htm


2. Option: Stay on 9.0.1.14 and only change the P12 certificate files.

You can replace your existing certs and use this three files, which I copied from my Traveler 9.0.1.15 server. The certs are valid until August 12 2017.

PushAPNSAppleVerseProduction.zip

Extract the zip-file and copy the three P12-files to your Traveler server: notes_data/traveler/cfg  and restart your Traveler server


You can check, if the Push Notifications are working and how long the certs are valid by executing this command:

tell traveler push cmstatus


It should look like this:
