I have the CLM 5.0.2 running on the default tomcat installation and db2.
I'm ordering an SSL certificate for my CLM 5.0.2 , and it ask me for the CSR and the server platform.

First I am going under the following assumptions
1. IKeyMan tool is being used to generate the CSR
2. The CSR is being generated from the keystore located at <CLM_Install_Root>/server/Tomcat/ibm-team-ssl
a. This is the keystore that Tomcat uses, and once the CA provides the ARM file, it can only be imported into the keystore where the CSR request was generated

I would think Apache 2, Apache + open SSL or Apache +Apache Security should work, but I would suggest to contact the CA and let them know that TOmcat is running with the IBM JDK, and ask for their input.

Hi Abraham, thanks for your reply.

1.- I'm using the keytool.exe that is provided with the clm installation.
2.- No, is not being generated by the keystore located at Tomcat/ibm-team-ssl , actually I'm using a website that allows me to generate a code to get the csr.

Is something wrong with using that key instead of using the ibm-team-ssl ? I could not get the CSR for the ibm-team-ssl. What do you recommend?

I used the Ikeyman to generate the CSR for the ibm-team-ssl.keystore. Thanks for your support. I'l try to figure out the platform.
