Certificates that are enabled and configured for backups, are automatically backed up with every full backup. For more information on enabling and configuring certificate backups, see the “How to: Configure certificate backups” section.
Note: The certificate backup password is stored encrypted.
|ID||int||Primary key row identifier.|
|CertPword||varbinary||Certificate password. This is the password
used to protect the certificate backup.
|BackupCert||bit||Flag that determines whether or not to back up this certificate type.|
You can back certificates up to as many locations as you like. For example, to back up server certificates to two location, insert one row for each target location into Minion.BackupSettingsPath with BackupType = ‘ServerCert’, and the remaining fields populated as specified in the “How to: Configure certificate backups” section.
Note that certificate entries in Minion.BackupSettingsPath do not need to populate DBName. We use DBName=‘MinionDefault’ in the examples given, but one could just as easily use DBName=’Certificate’, DBName=’ServerCert’, or any other non-null value. The important thing is that BackupType must be set to ‘ServerCert’ or ‘DatabaseCert’.
