If the dname.otp.xml file is missing, a user cannot access the Recovery mode dialog. This condition prevents the user from opening the database using the Secret key. Under these circumstances, it would be helpful if OtpKeyProv plugin automatically opened a Recovery mode dialog that also included access to all options needed to rebuild a missing dname.otp.xml file.

    Good idea, thanks! If the OTP info file cannot be loaded, OtpKeyProv 2.2 (released a few minutes ago) shows the OTP prompt dialog with the recovery tab page being selected by default. After opening the database, the user can use 'File' -> 'Change Master Key' to configure a new OTP setup.

    Best regards,
    Dominik
