Status of authentication key

You can use the apsedkey status command to check whether AEK is enabled, whether SEDs are auto-locked, and to display more information about the AEK state for the SED.


  1. Log in as apadmin or equivalent user in any of the Control Nodes of the system.
  2. Run the following command to show the status of the current AEK that is used to lock the SED drives in Cloud Pak for Data System:
    apsedkey status
    Sample output:
    [apuser@sfm02-node0102 bin]# apsedkey status
    Key 'key1' is being used to lock the SED drives.
