CAS9125E - Invalid data: Key tampering detected or transcription error

A sitekey is a special license key that is not CPU specific. The format of a sitekey is as follows:

PROD(WF) DATE(30SEP16) CPU(SITE-****/siteid) LMPCODE(xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)
where: "siteid" is the customer CA siteid "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" is the CA license management generated code

Solution:

When CAS9 is reading in a "sitekey", a corresponding "sitecard" must be present in the KEYS member ahead of all "sitekey" statements. The following example represents a "sitecard" followed by a "sitekey"

SITEID(siteid) SITECODE(ccccccccccccccccccccc) NAME(company generated name)
PROD(WF) DATE(30SEP16) CPU(SITE-****/siteid) LMPCODE(xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)

Note: The SITECODE and NAME on the "sitecard" are generated by CA License Management code. These values must appear exactly as delivered by the CA License Management team.
