Avamar "at-rest" encryption

Can you tell me if the Avamar 5.0 "at-rest" encryption can be enabled after the install or is it truely just a new install only parameter?  This would be the gsan_encrypt_at_rest attribute.

Thank you!!

Hi Steve - the encrypt-at-rest parameter can only be configured at installation time.. not afterwards.

Yes they will loose the data, in order to preserve the data they need to replicate the data to a temporary grid, re-install avamar with encryptions and then re-replicate the data back to the original grid.
