Re: Update expired orderer org admin certificate and orderer certs #fabric #fabric-questions #fabric-orderer #signcerts

   If you have not seen Minifabric, you probably can take a few minutes looking into that. It allows you to deploy fabric in literally few minutes and allows you to update channel configuration very easily. The steps you described in your email largely match how Minifabric does channel update, the good thing is that Minifabric records all the steps to do this task in vars/run/ script so that you can inspect how it does it.

Hi Ramesh,
Doubt 1: If i have understood correctly, for every update I followed the usual procces for channel update which is:
  1. fetch the latest config block
  2. decode to json
  3. copy the decoded json
  4. modified the copied json
  5. encoded the copied json and the modified json
  6. computed  the diff between the two and encoded in a .pb 
  7. converted the .pb in json
  8. added information about the channel to update (envelope)
  9. encoded the envelope
  10. updated channel configuration using the envelope pb

Doubt 2: I updated everything in atomic operations (just to be sure and have smallest changes possible every time), I think that updating orderer admin and peer admin certs will not be a problem but I didn't tested it, so do at your own risk
