APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • hwkeytool -genseckey -existinglabel sometimes fails because
    keysize is needed.  But hwkeytool -genseckey -existinglabel
    -keysize fails because -keysize is not allowed with
    -existinglabel
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • If hwkeytool -genseckey -existinglabel is used with key
    algorithm that IBMJCECCA does not support in the CKDS the user
    gets an error that keysize is required.  If -keysize is added,
    the user gets an error that keysize is not allowed with
    -existinglabel
    

Problem conclusion

  • Update hwkeytool so that a keyalg not supported for
    -existinglabel gets appropriate error message.
