RIM code siginig keys are installed at my clients machine. I want to use the same set of keys, to test the app on device. I got the .db, .csk and .set files from clients machine. I imported the keys using eclipse editor also. But when I try to sign the cod file, it is asking for private key password.
Actually there is no private key password.
How can I use them??
while I googled I found the following info.
One Set of Keys on Multiple Machines?
Once you install the keys on your box you cannot move them to another machine without going through RIM support and requesting new keys. As I understand it, this process invalidates your original keys. The bottom line is that you cannot use one set of keys across multiple machines so chose the box where you install the keys wisely.
Is this info has any justification from RIM? Can I expect any KBArticles or documentation from RIM conforming the same? or relevant to the above info??
Or is there anyway to reuse the same set of keys on multiple machines?
Solved! Go to Solution.

You can move teh keys to another machine by copying the needed files over to the new machine. The private key password should be the one that was set when creating/installing the siging files. I actually installed my keys on a flash drive and carry it with me. That way I can sign the files on any pc with no issues.

Thanks for the reply,
But, I dont have the private key with me, thats the actuall problem. I dont have the RIM keys installed previously, in this machine, so I tried to import the keys. It is asking for private key.
Is there anyway to set the private key password, without installing the keys and just by importing them.??

BlackBerry code signing keys only support a single PC.
The private key password is created when the BlackBerry code signing keys are installed. It is not possible to view or change it afterwards. The only way to reset the password is to re-install the code signing keys. To do that you'll need to request a replacement set of csi files from email@example.com. But note that they keys would be sent to the original registered user.

No, there is no charge for replacement keys.

If that is the case what is the function of "Import Existing Keys..."?
I am also getting a Private Key file not found. I actually have the .csi files stored in another place.

BlackBerry Code Signing keys can be installed in multiple applications on the same PC (BlackBerry JDE, BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse, BlackBerry Widget SDK). The import keys function imports keys that were installed into another application into the BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse.
