Generate authentication key
You can use the apsedkey generate command to create a key suitable for the SED drives.
Log in as
apadminor equivalent user in any of the Control Nodes of the system.
Run the following command to generate the AEK:
apsedkey generate --file <file>
The command generates a 256 bit key into the key file specified by the file argument. This can be a path to a file, such as /tmp/mykey.txt.Example:
[apadmin@e1n1]# apsedkey generate --file /tmp/key1.txt
