How do you implement the Random Number Generator on the P5040 Security chip?

I have followed the P5040 SEC manual to instantiate a state handle in order to generate a random number, but I seem to run into various errors depending on the combinations of commands I write out. Currently, I am using a Header, Algorithm, and FIFO Store command to issue the instantiate setup for the state handle. That seems to pass without error, but upon trying to issue the Header, Algorithm, and FIFO Store command for generate, we get an RNG error that says Hardware Error according to the spec. Any ideas of how to troubleshoot this?
