Last updated on JUNE 10, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle GlassFish Server - Version 2.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


GlassFish Server 2.x (Developer/Cluster profile) does not start up after a Private key is imported into the GlassFish Server 2.x keystore. The following errors are seen inside the GlassFish server.log and the server fails to start.

This new private key "<alias-name>" has a different password for it's key than the keystore's store password when it is imported from some other keystore.

2. Alternatively, the above error may also happen if an "asadmin change-master-password" is made
    and the GlassFish keystore contains other application related private keys.
