Environment

NetIQ AppManager 7.0.x
NetIQ AppManager 8.0.x
NQKeyGenWindows

Situation

How do I remove existing RPC Encryption mode in AppManager?
How do I verify whether or not an AppManager agent is using RPC Encryption?

Resolution

To verify the current security level for an AppManager agent, run the following command from a Command Prompt on the agent computer

  nqkeygenwindows - agentseclev

The security level can be determined remotely from another agent machine, Management Server, or Console by using the following command:

  nqkeygenwindows -remoteseclev machinename

The Windows registry on an agent contains the RPC encryption settings:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NetIQ\AppManager\4.0\NetIQms\Config
String : RPC Encryption
String:  RPC Authentication

  • OFF = 0
  • ON = 1

You can change the setting for RPC encryption using the NQKeyGenWindows utility.  For a list of valid parameters and options, execute NQKeyGenWindows from a command prompt.
