Certutil command is prompting for password

(Vyshnav A V) #1

We have been observing that after migration to CentOS 7.4 the installation fails due to password being prompted for the execution of below command as part of the install script.

<custom_location>certutil -N -d -f /nsspassword

The install script contains the above command to create the NSSDB at the install time. Ideally, this command should never prompt for a password when it is already provided as part of ‘-f’ argument but seeing this issue after migration to centOS 7.4.
Also frequency of the issue is intermittent.

nss-tools-3.28.4-8.el7.x86_64 this is the nss-tools version which we are using.

Can anyone please help us to find the cause of this issue?

Thanks and regards,
