Each time SQL is failed-over or the SQL instance changes the Master Key must be updated. Steps to update the Master Key are mentioned below.
- Navigate to Winshuttle Central Administration -> Database Connection page. This must be done by a Winshuttle Central Administrator (someone who has membership in the Central Administrator's group).
- Click on "Update master key" button.
