Error description

  • User is encountering an exception when updating the HSM
    
    Error: Unexpected exception: java.lang.NullPointerException
    
    Exception is thrown from the following code, it appears if the
    compareTo line does not match on a Cert Store name it drops
    through to the setCertStoreName call but as the certStore
    variable has not been initialised it is still set to NULL and a
    java.lang.NullPointerException is thrown
