I have a password that is in plain text in our vyoptacollector.xml file. How can avoid having the plain unencrypted password in this text file?
We currently have an ability to encrypt passwords with our Next Generation Data Collector. All you need to do is take the password from the XML file as shown below
and then you will need to run the following command with the Next Generation Data Collector in a command window as shown below
vyoptacollector.exe -encrypt <yourpassword>
In the screenshot above, we saw the encrypted password returned of "$$n+ZykpgRYKmorelvMwNLeypim6rJ+kyAquas0++0+fE=" so we will now update the vyoptacollector.xml file with the new encrypted password, as shown in the screenshot below.
At this point, the password is now encrypted with AES 128.
