I am having some trouble with the kmip_plugin and would like some help.

When I make a call to barbican to store a secret it returns the following

2015-04-03 12:33:17,279 - barbican.api.controllers - ERROR - Secret
creation failure seen - please contact site administrator.

In the barbican-api.conf file I have set enabled_secretstore_plugins to
I have also updated the kmip_plugin part of the file to point to the host
and port where my kmip Key Manager is running
with all the required credentials and ssl certs.
I also made sure the ssl requirements are set to permissions 400.

Is there something I am missing that is causing this problem?

Thank You!!
