data_encryption in global.ini in SAP HANA 2.0 and SAP HANA 1.0

795 Views

In SAP HANA 2.0 it seems the parameter [persistence]data_encryption in global.ini is not being used/set for enabling encryption.

Logs: in HANA 2:

====

select * from M_ENCRYPTION_OVERVIEW;

SCOPE,IS_ENCRYPTION_ACTIVE,LAST_CHANGE_TIME
"LOG","FALSE","2017-03-29 10:38:12.000000000"
"PERSISTENCE","TRUE","2017-03-29 12:18:48.000000000"

But the value of data_encryption is still false :

SELECT * from "PUBLIC" . "M_INIFILE_CONTENTS" where LOWER(section)='persistence' and LOWER(KEY)='data_encryption';

FILE_NAME,LAYER_NAME,TENANT_NAME,HOST,SECTION,KEY,VALUE
"global.ini","DEFAULT","","","persistence","data_encryption","false"

====

in HANA 1:

FILE_NAME,LAYER_NAME,TENANT_NAME,HOST,SECTION,KEY,VALUE
"global.ini","DEFAULT","","","persistence","data_encryption","false"
"global.ini","SYSTEM","","","persistence","data_encryption","TRUE"

====

Is the parameter data_encryption obsolete in HANA 2.0 ?
