Private key issues

I am getting this message when I boot my pix with or without a
configuration.

Cryptochecksum(unchanged): dc0a34f5 ccde0107 c4f0182c fce9f7d4
Type help or '?' for a list of available commands.
testpix>
Cannot select private key

Can anyone tell me what this means? This is a 501 PIX and I am
applying a config from a 515 just to test using the commands and such.

thanks

I would guess that you do not have an RSA key. To verify:

show ca mypubkey rsa

Thanks Rik

I did that and I get a message back showing my General Purpose Key.
THis pix is not live and not plugged into the network at all. When I
do the same command on one that is on the network I get both a General
and an Encryption Key.

Does my problem have something to do with the fact that this is not
plugged into the network???

thanks

To generate key:

ca gen rsa key 1024
ca save all

Reload to see if message goes away.
