Encryption of passwords used by prpcUtils (i.e. not in prconfig.xml and prbootstrap.properties)

We are trying to encrypt our JDBC passwords by creating a Keyring, as described in the Pega SAS course material (and various PDN pages).

While doing so we realized that prpcUtils.sh (Import and ExportRAP) as well as migrate.sh (needed for Pega-HA) are not using prconfig.xml and prbootstrap.properties.

Instead, they use prpcUtils.properties and migrateSystem.properties, respectively. Neither the -Dpegarules.keyring method (using our own cipher), or the encrypted passwords from com.pega.pegarules.pub.PassGen (using the builtin cipher) are working with these tools. Both methods just result in database authorization errors.

What is the correct way to encrypt the passwords used by these tools?
