## How to apply the boot-officers as soft token?

If you need to bootstrap a CM server without having card readers at hand f.e. on laptops you can alternatively do this with softtoken.

To do so the following files are needed:

cablob.bin
keyblob.bin

so1.pse / so1.p12
so2.pse / so2.p12

1. Copy the installation of the CM software from CD to a local drive.
2. BEFORE starting the installation copy the files 'cablob.bin' and 'keyblob.bin' in this directory 'bootkeys_soft_pse' into the subdirectory 'bootkeys' of the CM installation.

Otherwise if you have not used the soft boot key you should do this:

In database CMDB delete all entries in
SupPets/AdminStore
SupPets/CARuntime
SupPets/CAKeysRunTime
