If authentication is SERVER_ENCRYPT, then the user ID and password are sent from the client to the server so authentication can take place on the server. User IDs and passwords sent over the network are encrypted.

A value of KERBEROS_ENCRYPT means that authentication is performed at a Kerberos server using the Kerberos security protocol for authentication.

Note: The KERBEROS_ENCRYPT authentication type is only supported on servers running Windows.

This parameter can only be updated from a Version 9 command line processor (CLP).
