As I seem to keep misplacing my cheat sheets, I thought I'd post it. (Hopefully to be seen by others.)
Until this step is complete you will be seeing this warning in your BizTalk Server Event Logs:
"The master secret has not been backed up. If you lose
the master secret all the information stored in the SSO
system will be lost permanently and your systems may fail
to work correctly. Please use the SSO admin tools to back
up your master secret."
*And remember you need to either be a local administrator AND an SSO Administrator to run this command.
To back up the master secret key
- On the Start menu, click Run.
- In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
- At the command line, go to the Enterprise Single Sign-On installation directory. The default installation directory is <install directory>:\Program Files\Common Files\Enterprise Single Sign-On.
- Type the following syntax at the command prompt to backup the master secret key:
ssoconfig -backupsecret <backup file> (<backup file> is the entire file path name)
