Changing the encryption key password

For the ESI Exchange integration to work correctly, you must type the same password for each ESI Exchange HA Extension installation on each Exchange server in the DAG.

You can run the Seed Generator.exe command-line tool to change the encryption key password for the ESI Exchange HA Extension.

To change the encryption key password:

  1. On each Exchange server in the DAG, open a Windows command prompt, locate the SeedGenerator.exe file, and change to that folder.

The default folder is C:\Program Files\EMC\EMC Storage Integrator.

  1. Run the tool to set a new password for the server.

  2. For example, type the following, replacing <new password> with your new password:

SeedGenerator.exe <new password>
