What is the command to set a permanent default signing key in PGP Command Line 10.1 in a Unix (Solaris) environment?

You can specify a default signing key in PGPprefs.xml file.  You want to create the CLDefaultKey configuration value.  Set this to the KeyID of the key you want to use.

I updated the PGPprefs.xml file:

<key>CLdefaultKey<0x060XXXXX>
<string></string>

When I attempt to sign a new key I still get the same error. Is the update correct?
 

Also, when I run pgp -l, there is no asterisk next to the key that I entered into the PGPprefs.xml file.

That's close, but not quite the correct syntax.  You want it to look like this:

 

<key>CLdefaultKey</key>
<string>0x060XXXXX</string>
