About setting a recovery password

When the DLO Administration Console opens for the first time, the Recovery Password Wizard opens. You must set a recovery password to enable DLO to run. If you upgraded from a previous version of DLO and previously set a recovery password, DLO uses the existing password.

The recovery password enables you to retrieve encrypted data that would otherwise be lost if the DLO database is damaged or corrupted.

After this recovery password is set, you can change it only by using the DLO command line interface tools.
