This command ensures we have the encrypted disk passphrase. This command only gets used on encrypted disks.


It creates a new passphrase for the encrypted disk after checking for encrypted disk. For every disk it finds is a prompt to create a new passphrase. Once it checks for the default passphrase from the user, it creates a new passphrase, which it will ultimately delete. The user is asked for a passphrase four times in order to verify both new password creation and deletion of the newly created passphrase. If everything goes correctly, you should be able to enter the same passphrase four times.

If you discover that you do not have the passphrase. Contact another support member who does. In this case DO NOT REBOOT THE SERVER!
