But there’s a quicker way to get to DCM.
The Quick Way

Using this, you’ll go directly to the Digitial Certificate Manager without taking any side trips or taking any other options.
Just another quick tip to save you time when administering an IBM i partition. You can even embed this URL in a Web page for your system administrators, if someone needs to access the DCM on a regular basis.
