Testing a recovery key

A user with the security administrator role can test an encryption recovery key to verify whether the key is still valid.


  1. Log on to the storage system with the security administrator account.
  2. Click Settings > Security. On the Security page, select Data at rest Encryption.
  3. Open the Recovery Key section, and click Test to open the Test Recovery Key window.
  4. Enter the recovery key and click Test.

    If the recovery key is valid, a confirmation message will display.

    If the recovery key is not valid, a message will inform you that it is not valid. You can use the rekey action to create a new recovery key.
