Reinstall of SEP - Do not have encryption password
I need to reinstall SEP 11.0.7 to a different drive on the same server. I am going through the disaster recovery doc at http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH102333&locale=en_US, and it states the following about needing the "encryption password". ::
In the Backup.txt file, type the encryption password that
you used when you installed the first site in the
Note: If the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager was installed in Simple mode, the password specified for use for the Admin account for the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager is also the encryption password. If the Admin password is reset post-installation, the encryption password does not change.
You enter this key while installing the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.
The encryption password used must be the same as your first installation in order to restore a database backup and to re-establish communication with the clients.
If a different encryption password is used when performing disaster recovery without a database backup it will be required to replace the communication settings on all clients (by either using SylinkReplacer or reinstalling the clients).
I was not the one to instal the product, and I have since changed the admin password (not sure if this is the same thing). When I do the restore of SEP, I will have a DB backup as well. Is there another way to get this password?
