I am trying to add a certificate using keytool. I am using an Alias for the certificate but an alias already exists on the machine. The old certificate is no longer required so I attempted to preform a keytool -delete. It appears that the certificate .keystore directory has been manually deleted and the keytool application will throw an IOException, but not remove the alias (and thus allow me to reassign it).
Has anyone got any ideas how to delete a certificate in keytool when the certificate that no longer exists to be deleted!

Lemonhead! I was deleting it from the wrong (default) keystore!
