ASR1004 RSA Key Generation Failure

I am currently trying to configure SSH access to an ASR1004 Router.  When running the following commands to generate my keys:

Router(config)#crypto key generate rsa

I am getting the following output:

How many bits in the modulus [512]: 1024

% Generating 1024 bit RSA keys, keys will be non-exportable...

% Error in generating keys:no available resources

I get this error when trying lower bits (512) as well..

Anyone seen this before and/or know of any solutions?
Thanks!

ASR1004 RSA Key Generation Failure

Hi Kristopher,

You are hitting a bug CSCsu68592, you should upgrade version to avoid it.

Here are the details:

http://tools.cisco.com/Support/BugToolKit/search/getBugDetails.do?method=fetchBugDetails&bugId=CSCsu68592

Error in generating keys:no available resources

Symptom:
When generating the RSA keypair on the ASR router the following error message is returned.

% Error in generating keys:no available resources


Conditions:
attempting to create new RSA keypair
the following command is entered

crypto key generate rsa general-keys label key1 modulus 1024 exportable

The device returns the following

The name for the keys will be: key1

% The key modulus size is 1024 bits
% Generating 1024 bit RSA keys, keys will be exportable...
% Error in generating keys:no available resources

This behavior is the same regardless of whether or not the keys are exportable and / or labeled


Workaround:
no known workaround at this time.
