What do I need to know about validating the security key?


After creating a security key, you should validate the key file to make sure it is not corrupt.

If the validation fails, do the following:

  • If the security key identifier does not match the identifier on the controller, locate the correct security key file and then try the validation again.

  • If the controller cannot decrypt the security key for validation, you might have incorrectly entered the pass phrase. Double-check the pass phrase, re-enter it if necessary, and then try the validation again. If the error message appears again, select a backup of the key file (if available) and re-try validation.

  • If you still cannot validate the security key, the original file might be corrupted. Create a new backup of the key and validate that copy.
