Visual Administrator gives IAIK error when running keystore admin

We have recently set up Visual Administrator on our desktop PCs as per SAP Note 758298 - Offline Installation of J2EE Engine Visual Administrator.

When we try to run Keystore admin we get the following error:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: iaik/security/provider/IAIK

We have already followed the steps in note 758298, with the exception of step 3 - we don't have a file??

I searched the SDN forums and there was one person experiencing the same issue, but it was never answered... it did point at the following SAP Help URL though:

- which I have looked at and I wasn't sure about the part about using SDM to apply software, but I checked:

"under Dispatcher -> Libraries -> core_lib in the Visual Administrator. The iaik_jce.jar should be included in the list of loaded jars and not iaik_jce_export.jar"

- this was the case.

So what are we missing/how do we fix this?

Any advice much appreciated.

Hi Ross,

you may simply copy the security lib files (including iaik) to admin\lib directory at your visual admin installations. Restart visual admin afterwards and try again.

Great, thanks Anja - the documentation told me to copy these to the sec folder but this hadn't worked; copied the *.jar files to the lib folder as suggested and it now works!
