I am looking for an option to encrypt database agent and machine agent credentials in .xml. I tried doing it on .net agent and figured out that the encryption has to be done at installation time. Is there a way where we can encrypt account name & pwd? If yes, the do we need to install JRE on the servers for this encryption functionality?
Why I am asking this is, I installed machine agent with JRE bundle (which didnt asked me to install the JRE on the server) and now if encryption is possible then does it ask me to install JRE on the server? is this the same case for DB agent as a windows service?
Total environment is windows server 2012
$ java -jar ./lib/scs-api-1.0.0.jar generate_ks -filename testKeyStore -storepass teststorepass
no main manifest attribute, in ./lib/scs-api-1.0.0.jar
it is there...
$ ls ./lib/scs-api-1.0.0.jar
if i specify the wrong path to the jar it would have an error like this:
$ java -jar ./wrongpath/scs-api-1.0.0.jar generate_ks -filename testKeyStore -storepass teststorepass
Error: Unable to access jarfile ./wrongpath/scs-api-1.0.0.jar
Is there any other file part from "scs-api-1.0.0.jar"? something like 'scs-tool-1.0.0.jar"?
Neither the old one. How to get it then?
1. Download the machine
2. Go Jre folder and dig deep into lib folder and look for scs-tool
3. copy and paste it in db agent /lib folder
If you look at the AppD documentation it specifically says to use the api jar for the dbagent though...
Before you can encrypt or obfuscate passwords, you must run the secure credential store utility to create the keystore for your secret encryption key. The agent distribution includes the secure credential store utility in the following locations:
Yes, but api wont work. I was around this issue for 3 days and after having a call with AppD engineer, he told us to use "scs-tool".
This will be same case for machine agent "secure-credential-store-tool-188.8.131.52.jar" as well as db agent "scs-tool-1.0.0.jar".
Using 'tool' instead of 'api' will cause no issues.
Did it work? if yes, please share your answer, which might be helpful for community.
