    i have safely stored the private key password. doe that mean without this the TDE encrypted database cannot be restored with the database backup, certificate and private key backup files on the server without the private key password?
    If a user does not have SQL Server access and does not have the private key password (but has a databse backup file and certificate backup file and a private key backup file) can they NOT restore the database?
    I am assuming this is correct and you have to have the private key password and there is no other way to restore the database.
