[Opendnssec-user] Interaction with Thales...

Still having problems with Thales integration.
I've read the paper: "nShields ISC BIND DNSSEC UNIX ig.pdf"
...but its over two years old. Not sure how much of it is still

In my logfile on "start" - I get:

ods-enforcerd: opendnssec started (version 1.4.5), pid 12747
ods-enforcerd: HSM opened successfully.
ods-enforcerd: Checking database connection...
ods-enforcerd: Database connection ok.
ods-enforcerd: pidfile /var/run/opendnssec/enforcerd.pid already exists,
but no process with pid 12729 is running. A previous instance didn't
shutdown cleanly, this pidfile is stale.
ods-enforcerd: Reading config "/etc/opendnssec/conf.xml"
ods-enforcerd: Reading config schema
ods-enforcerd: Communication Interval: 3600
ods-enforcerd: No DS Submit command supplied

ods-enforcerd: 2 zone(s) found on policy "zacr-nsec3"
ods-enforcerd: 2 new KSK(s) (2048 bits) need to be created for policy
zacr-nsec3: keys_to_generate(2) = keys_needed(2) - keys_available(0).
ods-signerd: [hsm] libhsm connection opened succesfully
ods-signerd: [engine] signer started (version 1.4.5), pid 12752
ods-signerd: [worker[2]] CRITICAL: failed to sign zone web.za: General

So - good news - I'm talking to the Thales, but it looks like the
library supplied might be too old?

Looking at the supplied Library:

The (virtual) server:
Linux mjedev 3.13.0-24-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP Fri May 2 23:30:00 UTC
2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Anyone doing similar?
Anyone with a newer thales library?
