Device to be encrypted

I had an array with 3 xfs-encrypted hdd-s. I added a new hdd, but I didnt specify the filesystem so it ended up being a non encrypted filesystem. In hopes of fixing this:

1. I pulled the drive

2. replaced it with a different empty one

3. set the filesystem to xfs encrypted (didnt format).

4. started array with rebuild

5. rebuild finished

6. rebooted

 

But it says that its unmountable. And not encrypted. how can I fix this? Where did I make a mistake?   The array is in normal operation mode now

But the unraid rebuild said that format is never part of rebuild. So which is it?

 

Can I:

1 . pull the drive to put the array in degraded mode 

2. format the drive to any format

3. Format to xfs encrypted using unraid.

4. start rebuild?

It's not, but you didn't need to do any rebuilding, it was a new disk, you just need to format it (or re-format).

No.   A rebuild can never change the disk format - it can only rebuild to the format that was present before the rebuild.
