Error description

  • When upgrading from SSP 3.2 to 3.4.1.0 the idmb.enc file is not
    automatically upgraded to the new idmb2.enc version file, this
    results in the SSP being unable to start if configured to use
    an HSM device.
    

Local fix

  • STRRTC - 350386
    MB/RJ
    
    Circumvention:
    There is manual work around to run the convertKey.sh script
    

Problem summary

  • The new <installdir>/conf/system/idmb2.enc provides a greater
    encryption level, and without the new file, the system will not
    start when running an HSM device.  Without HSM, the idmb2.enc
    file is automatically created during the first system startup
    after the upgrade.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Updated the InstallAnywhere upgrade logic to silently create the
    idmb2.enc file from the idmb.enc file during an upgrade.  If the
    file is created, it then goes on to update the self-bootstrap
    file sb.enc with the higher encryption level.
    

Temporary fix

  • Run the bin/convertKey.sh script to create the idmb2.enc file
    and update the sb.enc file if it does not happen automatically
    during the upgrade.
