Diagnostic Messages

ERROR: Failed updating KeyManagement object 1a-fa347804-9d33-11d3-8025-006008aaae5b. Status: 'Unknown Failure'


Policy server : r12.0 and above Policy server OS : Any Policy store : Any


This happens when the "Enable Agent Key Generation" check box is disabled on the Policy server.

If the policy server is not configured to generate agent keys, smkeyimport will always fail to import the "KeyManagement" object.




Check "Enable Agent Key Generation" check box on the Policy server management console of the Policy Server before performing smkeyimport.

You can disable this back once the smkeyimport is complete.
