Thanks a lot, Our current backup system is veritas netbackup, and changing
that to entire bacula is best thing for me,
But the making the decision about switching to bacula was above my pay
grade. I hardly see that happen anytime soon.
so they wanted me encrypt these files, that is on the backup location
before the netbackup scheduler picks up these files.
Database is getting backed up to a disk location and from there netbackup
agent picks up and writes it into the tape , but we have these 13 flat files
that go into offsite which really needs encryption and decryption logic in
place upon after restore back to disk .
