Issue/Introduction

When attempting to run any of the agent tools, they fail with the error "PGP Cryptographic Engine FIPS 140-2 power on self tests failed"

Cause

The Agent tools require the following dll's to run in addition to the executable.

aqp.dll
PGPce.dll
PGPce.dll.sig

In addition, you may also need the following agent databases

sto.ead
ks.ead

 

Resolution

All of these files should be present in the DLP agent installation directory on a normal install, and if you plan to use the agent tools from a different directory than the agent installation directory then you need to copy them to the tools directory as well.
