When using the GUI, if a user adds a '.key' extension to the name, the file will be created with an extra .key extension to the file.


The extra '.key' extension causes problems with deletion/Archive etc. GUI posts the following error: Not Found.


When a key file name is 'test.key' entered from the GUI it is created with 'test.key.key'.


Delete the key and recreate without the .key in the name.

Fix Information

The GUI will prevent names with reserved extensions such as '.key'.
