To import an encryption-settings definition that has been previously exported, use the encryption-settings tool with the import subcommand. The subcommand takes the following arguments:
  • --input-file {path}. Specifies the path to the file containing the exported encryption-settings definition. This argument is required.
  • --pin-file {path}. Specifies the path to a PIN file containing the password to use to encrypt the contents of the exported definition. If this argument is not provided, then the PIN will be interactively requested from the server.
  • --set-preferred. Specifies that the newly-imported encryption-settings definition should be made for the preferred definition for subsequent encryption-settings.
