Issue/Introduction

Running CAS9 to install/load a new product sitekey can result in the following CAS9125E message...

CAS9125E - Invalid data: Key tampering detected or transcription error

A sitekey is a special license key that is not CPU specific. The format of a sitekey is as follows:

PROD(WF) DATE(30SEP16) CPU(*SITE*-/siteid) LMPCODE(xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)
where: "siteid" is the same SITEID value provided on the preceding site card statement, and "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" is the CA license management generated code

Environment

OS: z/OS , VSE

Release:  ANY

Component: CAIRIM

Cause

Resolution

When CAS9 is reading in a "sitekey", a corresponding "sitecard" must be present in the KEYS member ahead of all "sitekey" statements. The following example represents a "sitecard" followed by a "sitekey"

SITEID(siteid) SITECODE(ccccccccccccccccccccc) NAME(generated company name)
PROD(WF) DATE(30SEP16) CPU(*SITE*-/siteid) LMPCODE(xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)

Note: The SITEID, SITECODE and NAME on the "sitecard" are generated by CA License Management code. These values must appear exactly as delivered by the CA License Management team.

If the NAME is too long to fit on the same line, define it on the following line by using the continuation character as shown here:

                                                            column 72 v
SITEID(12345678) SITECODE(AFM3XC43BPASTBG0FUUY8)                       -
NAME(THISISAVERYLONGCOMPANYNAME)
