FNRCE0010E: E_BAD_VALUE error when setting 256-bit encryption for regular and Advanced Storage Areas



When creating a new storage area and enabling 256-bit encryption, the creation will fail with the following error: com.filenet.api.exception.EngineRuntimeException: FNRCE0010E: E_BAD_VALUE: The value given for a property or list element lies outside the permitted range or value set, or exceeds the maximum length allowed. The EncryptionKey property value has a length of "24" bytes and is consequently not valid. Specify a new property value with a length of 16 bytes


Program error prevents the encryption key from being set to the correct size.

Diagnosing The Problem

The process will only fail when creating a brand new storage area with 256-bit encryption enabled. The exact error message as described above appears as a pop-up error in ACCE and in the p8 server logs.

Resolving The Problem

The problem will be fixed in The problem can be worked around by setting the encryption to none or 128-bit encryption during creation, and then editing the storage area to increase the encryption to 256-bit, which will succeed.
