Client Based Encryption (Master: Windows, Client: Linux)
Encryption mode: Client encryption
Recently upgrade the master server to 188.8.131.52 but clients are yet to be migrated/upgraded to this level, currently clients are in the 6.5.x versions.
I have a need to build a new client (linux server) with a requirement to maintain the environment as close to the production as possible, hence went ahead and installed 6.5.6 but realised something has changed in how the setup of the clients encryption is meant to work. Previous versions, I needed to run the following, a process that copies files to the client
bpinst -ENCRYPTION <client>
following which, I would set the passphrase using following command
bpkeyutil -insert -clients <client>
These were in my documentation but realised now that the master servers bpinst has changed and does not have the -ENCRYPTION option, anyone done this?
At this point it means I can't proceed with the client setup which needs the encryption set to be able to restore from production media.
Please note still need to maintain many clients at 6.5.6 for now hence a solution that would allow me to setup this new server is required.
