Solution



Adding a Group Key to an Existing Group

To add a group key to an existing group on the PGP Universal Server

  1. Log in to the PGP Universal Server admin interface.
  2. Go to the Consumers > Groups page. The Keys column shows a group key icon for those groups that already have a group key assigned.
  3. Click on the name of the group to which you want to add a group key.
  4. In the Keys row, click View.
  5. Click Add Group Keys to add a group key to this group.
  6. Click Generate to create a new group key or Import to import an existing keypair as the group key.

    When you click Generate, a new group key will be created using the current default settings for a group key.

    When you click Import, the Import Key page appears. Select a key file or paste a key block, enter the passphrase of the private key, then click Import.

  7. Click Save to add the key to the group.

Caution: A group can only have one active group key. If you add a group key to a group that already has a group key assigned, the existing group key will be overwritten by the group key you are adding.
