Splunk for Cisco Identity Services (ISE): When using pxGrid, how can I resolve error "Cannot recover key"?

Engager

Hi,

I'm trying to connect Splunk to Cisco ISE using pxGrid. I have followed the instructions in the doc "How To 102: Splunk & pxGrid Adaptive Network Control (ANC) Mitigation Workflow Actions" but I get an error stating "Cannot recover key". Now, I know that the passwords for the JKS files are correct because I get a different error if I use a deliberately wrong password and 'keytool' can list the details of the keys and certs within the JKS files when used with the correct password.

So the question is: which key is it trying to recover at this point? What debugging can I turn on?

root@splunk:/opt/splunk/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_cisco-ise/bin/lib# java -jar pxGrid_Search.jar pxgrid.myorg.net splunk ../certs/splunk-01.jks PaSsWoRd ../certs/ca.jks PaSsWoRd 1.1.1.1 quarantine_ip

Thanks for any assistance,

The password for the private key within the keystore was different to the password for the keystore itself (see http://karim-ouda.blogspot.com/2010/07/errors-solutions-5.html).
