Error description

  • When configuring an XC10 grid to use encrypytion you provide a
    shared secret key to handle th encryption and decryption of the
    data. If you provide a private key rather than a shared secret
    key, the appliance may unexpectedly reload.
    
    This could also occur if the key length does not match the
    configured encryption algorithm.
    

Local fix

  • Ensure the correct type of key is used, and that the key length
    matches your configured algorithm.
    

Problem summary

  • DataPower may experience a reload trying to connect to an xc10
    grid when an asymmetric key is configured incorrectly for a
    shared secret key.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
