Logshipping with encrypted password
While testing with the set up I was checking the backup and restore jobs and statements. I noticed in the backup job, the password for file encryption is nicely encrypted as well, in between tags: <ENCRYPTEDPASSWORD>MyEncryptedPassword</ENCRYPTEDPASSWORD>
I noticed on the restore statement, the password was unencrypted. I tried changing this to <ENCRYPTEDPASSWORD>MyEncryptedPassword</ENCRYPTEDPASSWORD> but that made the statement fail.
Is it possible to configure the restore job with the password beeing encrypted, instead of unencrypted and thus readable? Or is there a reason to leave it unencrypted?
