ISSUE: Unable to model snmpv3 devices using AES 128. Devices configured for SHA model fine.

ROOT CAUSE: CAPKI may not have install properly. Check for an error similar to the following in the $SPECROOT/SS/VNM.OUT file:

Dec 05 15:01:18 ERROR TRACE at SnmpV3ProfileGlobalConfigIH.cc(204):SnmpV3ProfileGlobalConfigIH:Cannot initialize the CAPKI library

RESOLUTION: Reinstall the Spectrum base over the top of the existing installation. Verify CAPKI is installed. On Windows, check for the  C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\SC\CAPKI directory. On Linux and Solaris, check for the /opt/CA/SharedComponents/CAPKI directory. Then reinstall the most current previously installed HotFix and then any post HotFix PTF and/or debug patches. Check the $SPECROOT/Install-Tools/.history file for the version, HotFix and debug/PTF patches currently installed.

Using the following $SPECROOT/Install-Tools/.history file as an example: 05/28/2010 11:50 08/09/2010 10:37

The user would need to install the following in the order specified: base 

09.02.03.H11 HotFix

09.02.03.PTF_H1123 PTF patch

09.02.03.PTF_H1126 PTF patch

09.02.03.PTF_H1129 PTF patch


Or the user can upgrade to a newer version of Spectrum. Again, verifying CAPKI installed correctly after the upgrade.
