Encrypting File System and Network Relation if any !!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can I get few insights on Encrypting File system (EFS).

    I am working on applying EFS on 10 FileStream containers sized around 600 GB each. When first applied it took 18 hours approximately . When tried once again applying EFS on 10 FileStream containers it took 15 hours. This is my question .

    On what factors does EFS works . When I say factors does Network or System Hardware has any role during EFS getting applied ? I did turn off all the SQL Server services before applying EFS . Kindly help me understand why ups and downs in timings when applying EFS .


    Best Regards,SQLBoy
