The RESET.MASTER.KEY command resets the encryption master key. This command can only be executed by users with administrator rights in the QMSYS account.

 

 

Format

 

RESET.MASTER.KEY

 

The command prompts for the master key string and whether this must be entered every time QM is started.

 

 

The RESET.MASTER.KEY command is intended for use after moving the encryption key vault from another system or after application of a new licence. It can also be used to enable or disable the need to enter the master key using UNLOCK.KEY.VAULT every time that QM is started.

 

The key string entered must be the same as when the key vault was created. The master key cannot be changed unless the key vault is cleared and rebuilt.
