4.13 Specifying a Master Key

Specify whether to import an existing master key or create a new one. Examples of reasons to import an existing master key include:

  1. Click Yes to import an existing master key, or click No to create a new one.

  2. Click Next.

    The installation procedure writes the encrypted master key to the master-key.txt file in the installation directory.

    If you chose No, skip to Section 4.14, Configuring the User Application. After you finish the installation, you must manually record the master key as described in Section 7.1, Recording the Master Key.

    If you chose Yes, continue with Step 3.

  3. If you choose to import an existing encrypted master key, cut and paste the key into the install procedure window.

  4. Click Next.
