When software tokens such as MobileID are created by the authentication server, a sequential serial number will be automatically generated (with serial numbers starting from "10000001").

If software tokens are to be imported from an external source (for example when importing software tokens from one authentication server into a newly created authentication server), it is necessary to ensure that newly created tokens will not be created with serial numbers and types that match those of tokens already present in the token repository.

If you need to import software tokens that were generated on another DualShield server then there are a few checks that need to be performed in order to prevent the possibility of tokens being created with duplicate serial numbers;


Provided you follow the above instructions, you will avoid the risk of potentially generating tokens with matching serial numbers.

Procedure to change the next serial number allocated for software tokens

For each software token type that can be created in the authentication server there is a value that is stored in the internal database.

The values for the next generated token serial numbers to be used for each type cannot be changed from within the authentication server, and can only be changed from within the database.

Example: Changing the next generated serial number for MobileID tokens;

At the console prompt "mysql>" enter the  following commands:
