SSH to ILO key Authentication

SSH to ILO key Authentication

I'm trying to upload a SSH key to the ILO for the first time. I receive the following errors:
One of the following may be the reason:
1. The key store is full. There is only enough storage for 4 SSH keys.
2. The user identified in the key file does not exist in the local user database of this iLO 2.
3. The supplied key file is not formatted correctly.

This is the first ssh key being added. I created the user Administrator on the remote system for whom I generated keys for. I tried to add both a dsa and rsa key with no success.
