Export the RAID controller security key

The RAID controller security key is used by the controller to lock and unlock access to encryption-capable physical disks. You can export the key and store it in a safe location. During recovery from controller failure, you will need to provide the key.

Export of the RAID controller security key is a one time only operation. After the key has been exported, the menu for exporting the key is no longer available.

  1. Log into the TanOS console as the user tanadmin.
  2. Enter A to display the Appliance Configuration menu.
  3. Enter X and follow the prompts to display the Advanced Configuration menu.
  4. Enter 4 and follow the prompts to export the RAID controller security key to the /outgoing folder.
  5. Use SFTP to copy the file from the /outgoing directory to your local computer.

Files copied to the /outgoing folder are deleted every day at 02:00 AM. Also, you can export the RAID controller key only once. After you have completed the export, the option to export the RAID controller key is removed from the TanOS menu, and there is no other way for you to retrieve it. It is, therefore, of critical importance that you copy the RAID controller security key file from the /outgoing directory to your local computer immediately after you have used the TanOS menu to export it.

The default name of the RAID controller key file is TanOS-key-controller-Cfg.tgz. It is recommended to change the name to include the hostname or serial number of the appliance it came from before you store it. You likely have more than one appliance, so a name based on unique hostname or serial number is useful if you later need to locate the correct file.
