Buster - zfs encryption... Will it be enabled?

Postby rsi » 2018-09-08 16:15

Hello, and again a buster thread from me. :)
Yes, I'm using it for many things, so some problems come up...

Till today, encryption in zfs for linux on debian is not enabled / implemented?

Code: Select all
root@vmm:~# apt-search zfs
Installed ...
ii  zfs-dkms                               0.7.9-3                  all                      OpenZFS filesystem kernel modules for Linux
ii  zfs-zed                                0.7.9-3                  amd64                    OpenZFS Event Daemon
ii  zfsutils-linux                         0.7.9-3                  amd64                    command-line tools to manage OpenZFS filesystems

... search for none installed pakages ...

zfs-test - OpenZFS test infrastructure an support scripts
zfs-zed - OpenZFS Event Daemon
zfsutils-linux - command-line tools to manage OpenZFS filesystems

'apt-search' is just a little shell script from me, so it shows just all installed and not installed packages I'm looking for.

Code: Select all
root@vmm:~# zpool set feature@encryption=enabled zfs1
cannot set property for 'zfs1': invalid feature 'encryption'

It seems that the encryption is not implemented in zfs on buster?

Did anyone know, if this will be implented to release of buster?

I did a websearch for "invalid feature 'encryption'" and found this:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1751671

Native encryption was merged to master but has not been released in a tagged version. There are actually a couple of issues that will result in on-disk format changes. It should be the major feature for the 0.8.0 release.


you might find out more about it here:

Some add information...

With latest updates, zfs is complet broken (and some other things)!
I've often used debian testing in the past and it worked mostly just fine.
But debian buster is the badest testing I've ever seen! And I use debian over 10 years!
Stretch was bad, but Buster is the worst thing I've experienced so far. Debian gets worse with every release...

So, bye bye debian, welcome ubuntu server...

Testing and unstable should have "use at your own risk" in the default shell prompt to constantly remind their users of what they are doing.
