Data Ssh installation error "RSA key generation failed"

While trying to upgrade ssh from v4.7 to v5.0 on AIX 5.3 TL9, I end up with the following error.


Quote:
RSA key generation failed
instal: Failed while executing the ./openssh.base.server.post_i script.


0503-464 installp: The installation has FAILED for the "root" part
of the following filesets:
openssh.base.server 5.0.0.5302

installp: Cleaning up software for:
openssh.base.server 5.0.0.5302

Has anyone come across this?

Note: openssl has been upgraded to 0.9.8.840 before this upgrade

RSA_check_key(3)						      OpenSSL							  RSA_check_key(3)

NAME
RSA_check_key - validate private RSA keys LIBRARY
libcrypto, -lcrypto SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/rsa.h> int RSA_check_key(RSA *rsa); DESCRIPTION
This function validates RSA keys. It checks that p and q are in fact prime, and that n = p*q. It also checks that d*e = 1 mod (p-1*q-1), and that dmp1, dmq1 and iqmp are set correctly or are NULL. As such, this function can not be used with any arbitrary RSA key object, even if it is otherwise fit for regular RSA operation. See NOTES for more information. RETURN VALUE
RSA_check_key() returns 1 if rsa is a valid RSA key, and 0 otherwise. -1 is returned if an error occurs while checking the key. If the key is invalid or an error occurred, the reason code can be obtained using ERR_get_error(3). NOTES
This function does not work on RSA public keys that have only the modulus and public exponent elements populated. It performs integrity checks on all the RSA key material, so the RSA key structure must contain all the private key data too. Unlike most other RSA functions, this function does not work transparently with any underlying ENGINE implementation because it uses the key data in the RSA structure directly. An ENGINE implementation can override the way key data is stored and handled, and can even provide support for HSM keys - in which case the RSA structure may contain no key data at all! If the ENGINE in question is only being used for acceleration or analysis purposes, then in all likelihood the RSA key data is complete and untouched, but this can't be assumed in the general case. BUGS
A method of verifying the RSA key using opaque RSA API functions might need to be considered. Right now RSA_check_key() simply uses the RSA structure elements directly, bypassing the RSA_METHOD table altogether (and completely violating encapsulation and object-orientation in the process). The best fix will probably be to introduce a "check_key()" handler to the RSA_METHOD function table so that alternative implementations can also provide their own verifiers. SEE ALSO
