How can I migrate Filevista to another machine while preserving the password encryption?

I need to migrate our current site to another machine.  I performed a fresh IIS install and then performed a database restore overwriting the installation database.  It appears that the encryption of the passwords are different between the two machines.  How can I configure the new installation to decrypt the passwords as the initial installation?
Thanks

Just edit App_Data\FileVista.config and set the AuthenticationKey property to the same value as in your initial installation's config:
 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<FileVistaConfiguration>
  <DbProvider>System.Data.VistaDB</DbProvider>
  <DbConnectionString>Data Source=|DataDirectory|FileVista.vdb5;  Open Mode=NonexclusiveReadWrite</DbConnectionString>
  <DbSchemaVersion>7.3.6</DbSchemaVersion>
  <AuthenticationKey>3102FF196003A0B05F9B812376A044786E803D4F9BF5795F2819CE5253776A82</AuthenticationKey>
  <RecoveryModeEnabled>false</RecoveryModeEnabled>
</FileVistaConfiguration>
