Applies to:

Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-4 - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-2 - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
7000 Appliance OS (Fishworks)

Goal

This is an example of setting up an encryption key, creating some data, deleting the key, verifying the data is not available, re-creating the key, then checking the data again

This process can be used to ship a disk tray with a pool, or a whole appliance, while the data is unreadable because the key is missing
