Try To Import Key On OKM And It Not Working (Doc ID 2694397.1)

Last updated on JULY 30, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Key Manager - Version 2.5.1 to 3.3 [Release 2.0 to 3.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A two KMA cluster running OKM 2.5.1 had to be upgraded because of a new SL4000 library that was added to the environment.
( Certain tape drives from the SL3000 were moved to the SL4000. )

Only one KMA was upgraded to OKM 3.3.2 and during the upgrade the encryption keys of the existing drive agents were successfully converted ( and migrated ) to the OKM 3.3.2 database.

The customer was advised to run an additional step of importing the keys by means of the transfer partner process just to make sure all keys are migrated to the OKM 3.3.2 environment.
However, the transfer partner process resulted to duplicate key errors:

---
The OLD-SITE KMA has the same data units as the NEW-SITE KMA.

The Audit event log has messages like these, implying that that the data units have been imported to the NEW-SITE-KMA:
