Hi all,

I just read that "TrueNAS replaced GELI encryption with ZFS native cryptography in the version 12.0 release".

Can anyone explain to me what that means for a GELI encrypted system when updating to TrueNAS 12 (Core)?

Many thanks in advance

Legacy encrypted disks remain operable as today in 11.3.

I'm fairly sure you can't now create new encrypted volumes using the legacy method, but existing ones can be used and maintained.
