Abiquo installations running Oracle Java use the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy. If the correct JCE jars are not available, Abiquo will not be able to communicate correctly with hypervisors, storage devices, and cloud providers. In this case you may see errors in the UI and errors in /opt/abiquo./tomcat/logs/catalina.out such as Unable to initialize due to invalid secret key
When to install the JCE libraries:
The install process is to obtain the Oracle Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) 8 from here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jce8-download-2133166.html.
After you log in, you can download the file jce_policy-8.zip.
Extract the content and place it in $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security. Note that you may need to first install unzip from the Abiquo repo (yum install unzip).
To install quickly and automatically accept the Oracle JCE license, use these combined commands as root user:
You can check if JCE libraries have been updated by checking the md5sum.
