  • Hi Bunny,

    Back up encryption keys using rskeymgmt utility

    1. Insert a diskette into the floppy disk drive if you want to store the password-protected file separately from the report server.
    2. Run rskeymgmt.exe locally on the computer that hosts the report server. You must use the -e extract argument to copy the key, provide a file name, and specify a password. The following example illustrates the arguments you must specify:
      rskeymgmt -e -f a:\rsdbkey.snk -p<password>
    3. Store the diskette in a secure location.


    Hope this helps.
