Litespeed Encryption: multiple instances.

Hello I have a 100 or so instances that I need to create new backup jobs for and we have a requirement to use encryption. I know how to do it via GUI but for obvious reasons I was hoping to now have to run the GUI 100 times. When I tried to use the script against different instances the key is stored as n'*****' so that obviously doesnt work on different instances. Any ideas what I need to do ?

  • The best approach is to create a backup template with enabled encryption option and deploy it to the multiple instances. A backup job (or maintenance plan with the backup task) with encryption will be created for each instance in this case.

    so if I create the backup template. Lets say I just create one for system DB's every time I apply it to the different instances it will create a new maintenance plan that will setup the encryption key? The reason I ask is that I notice that it just stores the encryption as ***** in the stored procedure, and I am trying to figure out how it decrypts it.
