Summary
The SMS server maintains important data in both its database and in configuration files. The database holds data about the current and historical operations of the SMS server as well as the devices it manages. The configuration files contain data such as SMTP server information, NAT configuration information, and user information. This data is critical to the operation of the SMS Server and should be backed up periodically to facilitate recovery from an unexpected failure.

Q. Is the SMS database encrypted?

A. No, the SMS database by itself is not encrypted, SMS security relies on password protection and device accessibility.  You can however encrypt the contents of any SMS database backup you create. If you want to encrypt the contents of the backed up data, check the appropriate box in the SMS backup wizard and enter an encryption password.

 

CAUTION: Be sure to note and remember the password as the password is not recoverable. In addition, you cannot restore the contents of an encrypted backup without this password.
