Hopefully, this may help someone else.   There's an IBM technote on this that says:

Question

You are using the Server Certificate Admin database (certsrv.nsf) to set up SSL. When you install a third-party SSL site certificate for use by a Lotus® Domino® server, the following error occurs:

"Invalid keyfile accessed"

Answer

This error can occur if the key ring file is not located in your local workstation's Notes client "/data" directory. By default, the Server Certificate Admin application looks for this key ring file in the data directory. The process requires both the .kyr and .sth files to be in the local data directory or at the specified path.

To correct the problem, you can either

  • Move the key ring file to the /data directory, or
  • Specify the full path to the key ring file in the "Key Ring File Name" field in the "Create Certificate Request" document in the Server Certificate Admin application.

BUT even though I followed those recommendations: my keyfile.kyr was in the /data directory  AND I had specified the full path,  I still got the error !

 

Solution:   Have the keyfile.kyr in the /data directory, but in the "Key Ring File Name" field do not specify any path,  just "keyfile.kyr", and it will get past the "Invalid keyfile accessed" error.     (I suspect it may be a path problem occurring on Windows 64-bit computers where the directory is under  /Program Files (x86)/IBM/Notes/data/ )
