MANAGE_WIN_CERT_STORE_PRIVATE_KEY option for NetBackup primary servers
The MANAGE_WIN_CERT_STORE_PRIVATE_KEY option lets you disable the automatic permission management of the private key of the certificate in Windows Certificate Store.
This option is applicable for Windows Certificate Store and only when the NetBackup services are running in the Local Service account context.
When NetBackup services are running in the Local Service account context, the services need to have permissions to read the private key for certificate in Windows Certificate Store.
When the MANAGE_WIN_CERT_STORE_PRIVATE_KEY option is set to Automatic, the NetBackup service that is running in the privileged user account context grants access to all other NetBackup services for reading the private key whenever required.
By default, permissions for the private key are automatically managed. When the MANAGE_WIN_CERT_STORE_PRIVATE_KEY option is set to Disabled, the permissions of the private key need to be managed manually.
It is not recommended to set the MANAGE_WIN_CERT_STORE_PRIVATE_KEY option to Disabled.
To manually update the permissions when this option is Disabled, run the following command:
nbcertcmd -setWinCertPrivKeyPermissions -reason audit reason -force
Refer to the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide for more details on the command-line options.
