Yes, because it is up to the user to provide an HSM that has been initialized. It is possible to do this using PKCS#11, but some vendors have their own way of initializing their HSM. That is why it is up to the user to provide an initialized HSM to OpenDNSSEC.

You can choose whatever label you want (max 32 char.), as long as it is the same string you put in the conf.xml. You can also have multiple tokens, but the you have to use two different token labels.

I should probably add more info to that log message. "The token is probably not initialized or using too old DB schema version".
