Error importing .p12 file in PGP Command Line on AIX
Last Updated April 01, 2014
When using Symantec PGP Command Line on AIX operating system and trying to import .p12 file, your system may report lock error. This error may occur with --import and --sign-key parameters of PGP Command Line
~/.pgp/pubring.pkr:import key (0:file created successfully)
~/.pgp/secring.skr:import key (0:file created successfully)
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::lock_error'
As currently PGP Command Line is only available as 32-bit executable, the issue appears due to AIX OS limit for maximum number of memory segments attached to 32-bit process.
In order to resolve the problem please move ~/.pgp/PGPsdkIPC directory to /tmp folder or other location and set environment variable EXTSHM=ON prior execution of pgp command.
mv ~/.pgp/PGPsdkIPC /tmp/PGPsdkIPC.bakup
AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1
