Yay - I got it right.

+1, but it was not obvious.

I mark this one as 50 percent educated guess, 50 percent luck.

Thanks.
I was fairly sure of my answer... but admit to doubting myself just a bit.
Nice to see I got it right.

Good question.

Needed more thought than usual to get the answer - my first reaction was that it's created by magic when sql server is installed, but I could see that was wrong because that wasn't one of the options, so I had to think what would trigger its creation.

slightly crafty steve, but I got it.

Interestingly, MS advise one of the first things you should do on installing an instance is backup the service master key, and this indeed you can do even though encryption has not been activated. So what in fact are we backing up at that point?
