When you install Access Manager, the Sun Java Enterprise System (Java ES) installer generates a default password encryption key string. You can either accept this default value or specify another value produced by a J2EE random number generator. The installer stores the password encryption key value in the am.encryption.pwd property in the AMConfig.properties file.
If you specify a value for the password encryption key, the string must be at least 12 characters long.
To deploy multiple instances of Access Manager, save the password encryption key value from the am.encryption.pwd property after you install the first instance. Then, use this key value to set the value when you deploy additional instances:
If you run the Java ES installer, copy this value into the Password Encryption Key field on the Access Manager: Administration page.
If you run the amconfig script, set the AM_ENC_PWD variable to this value in the amsamplesilent configuration file (or copy of the file) before you run the script.
On Windows systems, if you run amconfig.bat, set the AM_ENC_PWD variable in the AmConfigurator.properties configuration file (or copy of the file).
