       certmaster-submit [-h serverHost] [-c cafile] [-C capath] [csrfile]


       certmaster-submit is the helper which certmonger uses to make requests to certmaster-based
       CAs.  It is not normally run interactively, but it can be  for  troubleshooting  purposes.
       The  signing  request  which  is  to be submitted should either be in a file whose name is
       given as an argument, or fed into certmaster-submit via stdin.

       There is no  standard  authenticated  method  for  obtaining  the  root  certificate  from
       certmaster CAs, so certmonger does not support retrieving trust information from them.


       -h serverHost
              Submit  the  request  to  the  certmaster  instance running on the named host.  The
              default is localhost:51235 if a file named /var/run/ is found on  the
              local  system,  and  is  read  from /etc/certmaster/minion.conf if that file is not

       -c cafile
              Submit the request over HTTPS instead of HTTP, and only trust  the  server  if  its
              certificate was issued by the CA whose certificate is in the named file.

       -C capath
              Submit  the  request  over  HTTPS instead of HTTP, and only trust the server if its
              certificate was issued by a CA  whose  certificate  is  in  a  file  in  the  named


       0      if the certificate was issued. The certificate will be printed.

       1      if the CA is still thinking.  A cookie value will be printed.

       2      if the CA rejected the request.  An error message may be printed.

       3      if the CA was unreachable.  An error message may be printed.

       4      if critical configuration information is missing.  An error message may be printed.


              the  certmaster  service's  PID  file.  Its presence is taken to indicate that this
              system is a CA, and that requests  should  be  submitted  to  a  certmaster  server
              running on the local system.

              the certmaster minion configuration file.  If there is no indication that the local
              system is a certmaster server,  then  this  file  is  consulted  to  determine  the
              location of the certmaster server.


       Checking  for  the  existence  of  certmaster's  PID  file is a terrible way to figure out
       whether we're a minion or not.
