Can someone please tell me if, when an external drive is attached to a server, and then encrypted, does the encryption make a connection between the original server and the drive that is encrypted and attached to it?
We are in the process of migrating from a physical server to a vm, and we have renamed the old server. While trying to access the data on the external encrypted physical drive, after it has been renamed, we are unable to access the database on there.
As a result, I am thinking that the encryption of the external drive, when connected to a physical server, there is some sort of relationship link between the two, which we may have severed when we renamed that server and changed its IP address.
Can someone please help in answering the question and, if possible, providing advice on how to access the data on the external encrypted drive. BTW, the drive appears to “unlock”, but the data is not accessible.
