I was trying to import a new certificate with an SSL key, but it was without success.
But as usual, before trying that on production, I tried that on my lab setup
. It was done without any problems.
But when trying with the production Alteon, running the same 29.5.1 version, I got this message:> -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
Enter key passphrase:
Error: The private key is not a valid RSA key
Error: Failed to extract key XXXXX
After trying it several times, comparing some random strings inside the key I noticed a lag when I pasted the key to the production Alteon. The reason for the lag was SecureCRT that was configured to insert delays between keys
. This feature is extremely useful with pasting large text into NX-OS.
My lab setup is with the default Line Send delay of 5ms and Character send delay of 0ms.
So I tried to use the lap SecureCRT delay setup on my production Alteon, and to my surprise it worked!
So to sum up: when pasting to Alteon 29.5.1, you better use the default SecureCRT delay settings.
One more thing and this will save you precious time digging through the command reference:"key" and "srvrcert" names must be identical
