Re: [Pki-users] CS 8.0: Cannot Complete CA Cloning Wizard Using nCipher netHSM



Patrick, 

This should work - given that the master's keys are visible to the
clone.  The only thing this suggests is that the nicknames that are sent
from the master to the clone are incorrect at the beginning of the
install process are incorrect.

To diagnose this, I'll need to know:

1. Versions of pki-ca and pki-common (rpm -q pki-ca pki-common)
2. Copy of debug log for both master and clone.
3. Copy of CS.cfg for both master and clone.
4.  Is the HSM in FIPS mode?

Thanks, 
Ade
