02:35:28 Secure Sockets Layer error: GSK_ERROR_BAD_KEYFILE_PASSWORD.
The keystore name used in the command to create the keystore and the stash file (i.e. the values specified along with -db option) did not match the DBSERVERNAME value in the onconfig file.
Resolving the problem
The keystore name used in the command to create the keystore and the stash file must be specified as <servername>.kdb, where servername is value of the DBSERVERNAME in the onconfig file.
If DBSERVERNAME in onconfig file in demo_on, then you should replace <dbservername>.kdb with demo_on.kdb, in following commands to create the keystore and the stash file.
gsk8capicmd -keydb -create -db <dbservername>.kdb -pw <password> -type cms -stash
(the following is all in one line)
gsk8capicmd -cert -create -db <dbservername>.kdb -pw <password>
-label <my_ssl_label> -size 1024 -default_cert yes
