When moving from ASA 8.0.3 to 12.0.1, I'm also moving from simple to strong encryption. That works fine for the database files (i.e. .db and .log) simply by unloading into a database created with DBINIT -ea -ek.
However, as I'm using SQL Remote and have a bunch of old v8 offline logs, I have to encrypt these old logs, too. And that's where I'm totally stuck:
So how can I change the old v8 logs from simple to strong encryption?
(Sidenote: That does not feel like simple encryption at all...)

You might be out of luck. Version 8 and 9 cannot convert a simple-encrypted file into a strongly-encrypted file. V10 and up can do it, but as you said they can't read the v8 format. I have no idea why I added this limitation because it should certainly be possible. And because v8 and v9 are EOL, I can't just go back and fix it.
I'll think about it some more and see if I can figure out a solution.
