HP Public Key installation on LINUX for NNMi9.10 installation

Hi,

Can anyone please suggest how to install HP Public Key on the Linux server, as this is one of the prerequisite for the installation of NNMi 9.10.

I follwed the procedure mentioned in the link mentioned below.

https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=HPLinuxCodeSigning


I created hpPublicKey.pub
then executed the commnad mentioned below.
# rpm --import hpPublicKey.pub

But it is throwing an error as mentioned below.

error: hp PublicKey.pub: import read failed(-l).

Can anyone please suggest on this to proceed with the NNMi9.10 installation

Thanks in Advance

Hi

I followed the same procedure and got no problems to install this public key.
So it seems the way how do you copy this information to a file is the culcript.
I marked the necessary text and added it into a vi editor. Delete any unnecessary lines. Import the key and verify it it afterwards by:
weight:/tmp # rpm -qi gpg-pubkey-2689b887-42315a9a
Name : gpg-pubkey Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version : 2689b887 Vendor: (none)
Release : 42315a9a Build Date: Wed May 4 08:57:27 2011
Install Date: Wed May 4 08:57:27 2011 Build Host: localhost
Group : Public Keys Source RPM: (none)
Size : 0 License: pubkey
Signature : (none)
Summary : gpg(Hewlett-Packard Company (HP Codesigning Service))
Description :
-----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----
Version: rpm-4.4.2.3 (beecrypt-4.1.2)
....

Hope this helps.
cheers

Re: HP Public Key installation on LINUX for NNMi9.10 installation

Hmm, this process worked on my dev box but now I'm tring to upgrade my production system. I've imported and successfully "trusted" but I still get the error message when running setup.bin that "The installer cannot find the HP public key on your system"

 

When I list the keys I get:

[206047261@usushiflp289 nnm910]$ sudo gpg --list-keysPassword: gpg: WARNING: unsafe ownership on configuration file `/home/local/NBCUNI/206047261/.gnupg/gpg.conf'/home/local/NBCUNI/206047261/.gnupg/pubring.gpg-----------------------------------------------pub   1024D/2689B887 2005-03-11 [expires: 2015-03-09]uid                  Hewlett-Packard Company (HP Codesigning Service)sub   2048g/57E5E96D 2005-03-11 [expires: 2015-03-09]

Any thoughts?

I'm also having trouble generating the HP Public Key.  When I follow the referenced link I get the following msg.

 

 

Failure of server APACHE bridge:

 


No backend server available for connection: timed out after 10 seconds or idempotent set to OFF.

 

Is there any updated infomration avalable?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Make sure that you don't have any chart startint in line: -----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----

 

I do realize, that when you copy the key from the site to an vi file, it add a space char at begening of line "-----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----" you must then remove this space char.

 

Best Regard,

Itsd

Hi, I just need to check if HP Public keys for windows and linux are different. I am sure the version information(2nd line in the code)  is different for them.
