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.
Hi Steve - the encrypt-at-rest parameter can only be configured at installation time.. not afterwards.
that means if customer change mind afterwards he needs to reinstall Avamar sofware too, or he just loose gsan data ?
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.
Thank you very much for your quick reply.
I need this confirmation to give a definitely reply to customer.
