Why does PGP lock its keyrings?
Posted on 2005-05-17
I am trying to run 2 script-based data transfer jobs. The files transferred are sent to a remote Ftp site and are therefore encrypted in the scripts. Problem is... if the two jobs begin running at the same time and are set up to use the same private key to encrypt, one of them fails. It seems that PGP locks the key when it is using the key for encryption. Any ideas? Is there a work-around? We have a real setup with many such jobs and have encountered this problem.
