How can I migrate Filevista to another machine while preserving the password encryption?
Question asked by Lee Longenberger - December 6, 2016 at 11:21 AM
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?

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"?>
  <DbConnectionString>Data Source=|DataDirectory|FileVista.vdb5;  Open Mode=NonexclusiveReadWrite</DbConnectionString>
