The reason for this error to occur is that no default acid is defined for the FACILITY.
To resolve, create default acid if it has not already been created with the following commands:
TSS CRE(acid) NAME('DEFAULT ACID') PASS(NOWPW,0) - TYPE(USER) DEPT(DEPT) FAC(ALL)
Define the FACILTY default acid in your eTrust CA-TOP SECRET parameter file by adding the following :
TSS MODI FAC(facility_name=DEFACID(acid)) to make permanent update the Top Secret parmfil
The default acid should be authorized according to you site security standards.
