I got it right, because I know that you have to create a certificate in master to protect the master key - but the question is a bit misleading.

The question says: "You have created a master key already in the master database and in the CRM database".
First, you do not create a master key in the CRM database. The master key is in the master database only. The key in the CRM database is called a "database encryption key" (DEK).
Second, I don't even think it's possible to create the DEK in the CRM database without FIRST creating the certificate. Since you need this certificate when you create the DEK.


The master key in the CRM database was designed to be misleading to see if you understand. You can create a master key in any database. However for TDE, only the one in the "master" database matters.

The DEK is in the TDE enabled database, and is protected by a cert in master, which you must create first.

Almost got me. Thank you for this further explanation I had to scratch my head and rethink this before I answered. Thanks for forcing us to be alert, even on a Friday.

Nice question.

We are getting quite a series of questions on TDE. It's good to have many questions on a topic and fairly close together, as it teaches much more effectively that questions separated by months.

Thanks for another TDE question Steve. Definitely a weak area for me. I agree with Tom that it is good to have these together. Helps the topic to set in better.

Didn't know the answer but it seemed the only sensible solution.
