About configuring legacy encryption from the client
The following table contains the legacy encryption-related configuration options that are on a NetBackup client. Ensure that these options are set to the appropriate values for your client. These are set if you run the bpinst -LEGACY_CRYPT command from the server to the client name.
Table: Legacy encryption configuration options
Defines the encryption options on NetBackup clients. The possible values for option follow:
Specifies that the client does not permit encrypted backups. If the server requests an encrypted backup, it is considered an error.
(The default value) Specifies that the client allows either encrypted or unencrypted backups.
Specifies that the client requires encrypted backups. If the server requests an unencrypted backup, it is considered an error.
Neither standard encryption nor legacy encryption is configured on the client.
Specifies the legacy encryption type, either 40-bit DES or 56-bit DES. This option is the default if the legacy encryption type is configured on the client, and the standard encryption type is not configured.
Specifies the cipher encryption type, which can be either 128-bit encryption or 256-bit encryption.
(The default value) Specifies 40-bit DES encryption.
Specifies the 56-bit DES encryption.
The install_path is the directory where NetBackup is installed and by default is C:\VERITAS.
The default value on UNIX systems.
The default value on Windows systems
The default value on UNIX systems.
