Decrypting an Encrypted Database

Use the Encrypt Database wizard to decrypt an encrypted database.

You may need to revert an encrypted database back to the plain text state as part of downgrading to an earlier version that does not support encrypted databases.

  1. In the left pane of the Administration Console, expand ASE Servers > Schema Objects > Databases.
  2. Click User Databases.
  3. Click the Name field of the database to decrypt, then click the drop-down arrow and select Encrypt.
  4. In the Options screen, if the database you chose is encrypted, the only option you can choose is Decrypt.
  5. Specify the degree of parallelism for the decryption.
  6. (Optional) Click Summary to view your selected options.
