Creating encrypted or unencrypted storage spaces

When storage space encryption is enabled, the storage spaces that you create are encrypted by default, however, you can specify to create unencrypted storage spaces. When storage space encryption is disabled, you cannot create encrypted storage spaces.

To create an encrypted storage space, set the DISK_ENCRYPTION configuration parameter, restart the database server, and then run the appropriate onspaces or SQL administration API command.

To create an unencrypted storage space when storage space encryption is enabled, use one of the following methods:

  • Run the appropriate onspaces command for the storage space and include the -u option.
  • Run the appropriate SQL administration API command for the storage space and include the unencrypt option.
