Changes

 On Box1 the US_export_policy.jar and local_policy.jar in the JDK/ jre/lib/security folder had been updated and these files had not been updated on Box2.

Then the cwallet.so was created using the above files on Box1 when using the unpack command on Box2 the cwallet.so file is unable to be decrypted using the US_export_policy.jar and local_policy.jar on that server.

The issue is due to the different US_export_policy.jar and local_policy.jar in the jre/lib/security folder on Box1 and Box2.
