You can use the secret phrase across multiple products and sites.


Install one or more Smart Assurance products on one or more hosts.


  1. Stop the Manager if short periods of interrupted communications are not detrimental.
    However, if the products also use cleartext connections, you can use the sm_rebond utility without stopping the Manager. Only that product will lose connections for a short period of time.
  2. Use the sm_rebond utility to change the secret phrase for each suite on each host.
    Note: The secret phrase must be exactly the same for each suite on each host in order for the applications to make connections.
  3. Use the sm_edit utility to update the security configuration files and seed files of the suites as needed.
  4. Restart the Manager if applicable.
