Properties file encryption

Complete the following steps:

  1. To encrypt a properties file, use:
    amcrypto.sh -encyptPropertyFile file

    The file is kl1.properties or kl2.properties in MS_home/etc. This command encrypts the given input file and stores it in a file with different name. The user can back up the existing properties file and have it replaced by the encrypted file for more security.

  2. To decrypt a properties file, use:
    amcrypto.sh -decryptPropertyFile file

    The file is kl1.properties or kl2.properties in MS_home/etc. This command decrypts the given file and writes the decrypted file to another file with a different name.

  3. Restart the Managing Server to activate the changes:

    1. If it is not already stopped, stop the Managing Server.

    2. Start the Managing Server.
