The utility should always be executed from the Enforce
/Protect/bin directory. keysize specifies the size of the random AES key that is used for authenticating the endpoint communication channel. pwd is a password that you want to use when executing endpoint utilities.
The utility outputs two files, one file ending in the *.endpointKeystore extension and one file ending in the *.endpointRecoveryStore extension, in the current directory where the tool is being executed, or in the directory specified by the optional -dir argument.
The *.endpointKeystore file must be copied into the
/Protect/keystore directory on the Endpoint Server, and then the Endpoint Server must be restarted. You should also pass in the string contained in this file into the MSI batch file as the KEY parameter when installing endpoint agents through your SMS provider.
The *.endpointRecoveryStore file must be kept securely on your Enforce machine. It is essential for recovering the password you have specified for your tools. It is recommended that you back up this file and keep it in a secure location.
