  2. Start the security admin tool in interactive mode (-i).

    The system requests login credentials.

  3. Enter the user name and password for an account with "Admin" credentials.

    Creates a backup zip file of the vault containing all passwords and keys and places the file in a location specified by the user, or in the following default location:
    Linux - /var/log/netapp/oci/backup/vault (wrong)


    Restores the zip backup of the vault that was created. Once restored, keys are reverted to values existing at the time of the backup creation.

    Change Encryption Keys

    Change the AU encryption keys used to encrypt or decrypt device passwords.
    Note: When you change encryption keys, you should backup your new security configuration so that you can restore it after an upgrade or installation.
