AABackup.exe fails to run from a different folder in 2FA v5

Issue

The AABackup.exe backup utility fails to run when copied to another folder on a server running AuthAnvil Two Factor Auth v5.

 

Cause

In 2FA v5 the connection to the SQL database is handled using SQL authentication. It also encrypts the SQL connection string. Because of this the AABackup.exe requires an additional DLL in order to properly run the backup.

 

Resolution

Copy the file TFA_ConfigKit.dll from C:\Program Files\Scorpion Software\AuthAnvil\AuthAnvilTools to the location of the aabackup.exe script. This will allow the script to properly connect to the SQL database and backup the data.

 

Affects

AuthAnvil Two Factor Auth v5.0 or later
