Creating a Self-encrypting Disk Domain

Creating a Self-encrypting Disk Domain

After a self-encrypting disk domain is created on the storage system, an encryption key is automatically generated.


SEDs have been configured on the storage system. The AutoLock status of the SEDs is OFF.

To query the AutoLock status of the SEDs, you can log in to the CLI of the storage system and run the show disk general command.

If AutoLock State is OFF, disk encryption is disabled.


  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose Provisioning > Disk Domain.
  3. Click Create.

    The Create Disk Domain dialog box is displayed, as shown in Figure 4-41.

    Figure 4-41 Creating a disk domain

  4. Name and describe the disk domain.

    1. In Name, enter a name for the disk domain.
      • Each disk domain has a unique name.
      • A disk domain name can contain only letters, digits, underscores (_), hyphens (-), and periods (.).
      • A disk domain name contains 1 to 31 characters.
    2. In Description, enter the usage and properties of the disk domain. The descriptive information helps identify the disk domain.

  5. In Encryption Type, select Self-Encrypting Disk.
  6. Select disks to be contained in the disk domain using any of the following methods:

    • Select All available disks.
    • Select Specify disk type.
      1. Select a storage tier.
      2. Set the number of disks that compose the storage tier.
    • Select Manually select.
      1. Click Select.
      2. In the Select Disk dialog box, select desired disks and click .
      3. Click OK to finish selecting disks.
    • You are advised to create a disk domain using Manually select. Ensure that the disk domain is made up of disks from the same engine. This will reduce disk failure rates and improve disk read/write performance.
    • If you want to create RAID 10 storage pools in the new disk domain, manually select disks for each storage tier in the disk domain and ensure that an even number of disks in each storage tier belong to the same engine. Such a configuration ensures the reliability of RAID 10 storage pools.

  7. Click OK.

    A message is displayed indicating that the operation succeeded.

  8. Click OK.

    After a disk domain is created, choose Provisioning > Disk Domain. In the lower pane, check that AutoLock of the SEDs in the disk domain is Enable.

  9. View the encryption key on the key management server.

    1. Log in to the key management server's web interface as an administrator.
    2. Choose Security > Keys.
      Figure 4-42 Key management
    3. Use the serial numbers of the SEDs in the disk domain to check whether the key has been generated in the key list, and whether the key is Active.

      You can run the show disk general disk_id= command and obtain the Serial Number of a disk from the command output.

Follow-up Procedure

After creating the self-encrypting disk domain, you can create LUNs or file systems to allocate the storage space to application servers. For details, see Basic Storage Service Configuration Guide for Block or Basic Storage Service Configuration Guide for File of the corresponding product model.

On DeviceManager, you can choose Settings > Export Data > Running Data to export running data. You can query the key management configurations in the running data.
