HPOO 10.50 Silent installation - Password Encryption for first central
We are installing Central - first node on clean database.
Is it possible to provide in silent.properties file some encryption for database password?
Or always it has to be in clear text?
For adding extra node to cluster is not an issue as we have encryption file from first node.
So anwer is, 'password has to be in clear text'
Deleting silent.file and changing password in enterprise could/is more complicated.
* password change (process) is time consuming, requires approval.
Then it has to be changed
* in DB
* in central configuration
so it adds extra complexity to deployments.
Would be great if central encryption key and password encryption could be generated before first install.
Each Central installation has its own encryption key. This is of course from security reasons.
Do you must install first in order to generate the key and afterwords Central to use it.
Even if you pass clear text in the silent.properties the passworf will end up encrypted.
Can you please describe the usecase why you would like to encrypt the DB password in the silent.properties it self?
