Install and Uninstall Reflection PKI Services Manager

Reflection PKI Services Manager is a service that provides X.509 certificate validation services. If you need support for user certificate authentication, you'll need to download and install this application. It is available at no additional charge.

To install Reflection PKI Services Manager

  1. Log in as an administrator.
  2. Start the Attachmate Setup wizard (Setup.exe). If you are installing from the download site, the following steps start this program:
    1. From the download site, click the Windows download link and run the download program.
    2. Select a location for the installer files, and then click Next. This extracts the files to the specified location and starts the Attachmate Setup wizard.
  3. Accept the default settings on the Advanced tab. (Creating an administrative installation image does not actually install the product — instead, it places the install files on a network location for later installation to multiple workstations.)
  4. Start the service.


  • On Windows, starting the console or the service for the first time initializes PKI Services Manager. This creates the required data folders and default settings files. If these folders already exist, they are not changed; PKI Services Manager uses your existing data files and folders. (On UNIX the install script automatically initializes PKI Services Manager if required, and starts the service.)
  • Before Reflection PKI Services Manager can validate certificates you need to edit the default configuration and map files.

To uninstall Reflection PKI Services Manager

  1. Log in as an administrator.
  2. From the Windows Programs and Features (or the Add or Remove Programs) control panel, select Attachmate Reflection PKI Services Manager.
  3. Click Uninstall (or Remove).
