    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: plugin-key.rdb is copyied               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a new plugin install is configured through the Plugin
    Configuration Tool, one step is to copy the
    etc/plugin-key.rdb to the newly configured area.  This file
    can cause gskit 420 errors if kdb stash is changed and
    propagated to the remote plugin configuration location. The
    rdb file isn't necessary and is generated for new certificate
    requests.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Plugin Configuration Process has been altered to not copy
    the etc/plugin-key.rdb file.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.16 & 9.0.5.0.  Please refer to the Recommended
