Hi,

the following gsk7cmd command is throwing an error as below. Please advise

Command: gsk7cmd -cert -list -db key.kdb -pw <password>

Error: Parameter -pw is not required

OS: AIX 1.6

MQversion: 7.0.1.9

When I tried the same cmd avoiding -pw parameter, it throws invalid password supplied error.


P.S. the same command works fine on another AIX server with same OS version, MQ version and gsk7 kit.

Could try this instead (from memory)?

Code:
gsk7cmd -cert -list -db key.kdb -stashed


Cheers,
Morag

Nice try Morag, but if gsk7cmd or gsk7capicmd used the -stashed option it was never published and an undocumented feature.
AFAIR the -stashed option was introduced with gsk8 and runmqakm / runmqckm... gdk7cmd brings me back to MQ 7.0x long time obsolete...

Thanks fjb_saper and hughson for your suggestions.

As fjb_saper said, it didnt workout.

What are the other options do we have for this error resolution. Can I try installing earlier or newer gsk kits and try the same command?
Any other suggestions please.

If you are trying to list all the certificate labels in the database, I would run it as follows:

gsk7cmd -cert -list all -db key.kdb

If you are trying to list the details of a specific certificate, I would run it as follows:

gsk7cmd -cert -details -db key.kdb -label ibmwebspheremqQM1

Sorry, it should have been:

gsk7cmd -cert -details -db key.kdb -label ibmwebspheremqqm1

Was doing the label piece from memory and forgot about the lower case on the queue manager name!

Don't worry, it happens to the best of us. Some call it age...

This is the complete error message? No AMQnnnn message id?

Ahh, this is an error from gsk7 kit command.
This kit is installed in a server separately and is used for SSL related configurations.
Once setup, the certificates can be used in MQ(and other tools as well) to have secure connections between servers.

It sounds like you are either using the wrong password, or the key.kdb is corrupted. Are you familiar with how to unwind the stash file to validate you are using the correct password?

Let me ask it another way... What error message was written to the qmgr error log when you ran the gsk7cmd?

I don't think any message would be written to the queue manager error log as a result of running the gsk7cmd command.
