*.exp exported FIPS keys cannot be imported from local directory when the directory contains any file named *.key with matching name. For example, if the directory /shared/abc/ contains an exported FIPS key named xyz.exp and another file named xyz.key, the user will fail to import xyz.exp as a FIPS key into the system.


Unable to import the FIPS key


When the local source directory of the exported FIPS key (xyz.exp) also contains a file with matching name (xyz.key).


Remove the same name *.key file from the local directory before importing the FIPS exported key *.exp.
