PGP Command Line 9.5.1 build 1027

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello there,

I am new to your Forum, request your help.

I am in the process of updating my current OS RHL 4 to  (Redhat Linux) RHL 6.

Will my existing PGP Command Line 9.5.1 build 1027 work in the new environment (RHL 6) ?  Do I have to take any precautions before the installation ?  Taking a backup of my existing home folder would be sufficient or any other folders needs to be backed up ?

Below is the command line output for Version .  As I cannot post my Organization and Lincence information they have been removed.

Based on your reponse, I would make my attempt to move or utilize the newer version of RHL.

End setup would result in virtual server. Currently it is configured as virtual, future the same setup would continue.

pgp --version --verbose

You should backup your public and private keys, wherever they are. Extension .asc (single key)  , pkr and skr (public and secure keyrings).

Thanks to the Sales team.  Team was quick in helping us get the key information from where we could download the new software PGP command line 10.2 (64bit) to be installed on RHEL 6 (64bit).

All went well.
