Dell™ PowerVault™ ML6000 Library Managed
Encryption Enablement Instructions
CAUTION: To prevent possible data loss due to an EKM server failure, Dell recommends the use of a primary and secondary EKM
server. This configuration provides redundancy in the event that the primary EKM server is down or unavailable. For information on
configuring a primary and secondary EKM server for your library, refer to "Multiple Key Managers for Redundancy" (chapter 2) of the
Dell Encryption Key Manager User’s Guide
and to the document
Dell Encryption Key Manager and Library Managed Encryption Best
Practices and FAQ.
Both documents are located on the Library Managed Encryption CD.
NOTE: The library must be offline from any user and all media must be removed from the drives before license keys are installed or any
configuration modifications are made. Please refer to the Dell PowerVault ML6000 Tape Library User’s Guide
library offline and to eject media from the drives. The user’s guide can be found at
http://support.dell.com.
NOTE: If the backup job fails due to an EKM server failure, the job will recover if connectivity is restored to the EKM server prior to
expiration of the timeout set in the tape backup software application
Enabling encryption on your library is a six-step process:
1
Upgrade the library and drive firmware to the latest version. The firmware is available at
http://support.dell.com
.
2
Obtain and install your license key to enable library-managed encryption (LME) on the library (if not already licensed).
For instructions, refer to your license key certificate or the
Dell PowerVault ML6000 Tape Library User’s Guide
.
If you purchased library-managed encryption at the time you purchased your library, the license key will be installed at
the factory. If there are any issues with the license key for library-managed encryption purchased with the library, visit
http://www.dell.com/tapeautomation
to obtain your license key. You will need the library serial number and service tag
number to obtain the license key. Refer to your license key certificate or the "Viewing Information About the PowerVault
ML6000" section of the
Dell PowerVault ML6000 Tape Library User’s Guide
for instructions on locating this information.
If this does not resolve your issue, please contact Dell technical support.
