I thought I'd share how you can enhanced the go file by reducing the six lines to a single command and it's not by using another script.  You can create a tar ball that contains the fetch_key and dele

thanks for all the good information about this topic.

Currently I try to use it with the "next" Unraid 6.9.0-rc2 release.

Its not working for me, therefore I wanted to ask if anyone has already tried this.

Maybe the problem is about the event folder:

ls -la /usr/local/emhttp/webGui/event/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root   60 Aug 31  2018 array_started/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root   60 Mar  2  2019 disks_mounted/
drwxrwxrwx 2 root root   60 Jan 27 23:42 started/
drwxrwxrwx 2 root root   60 Jan 27 23:42 starting/
drwxrwxrwx 2 root root   60 Jan 27 23:42 stopped/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root   60 Aug 31  2018 stopping_array/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root   60 Mar  2  2019 unmounting_disks/


Are the folder / event names changed to the new names: array_started, disks_mounted, stopping_array and unmounting_disks?

started, starting and stopped just containing the delete_key and fetch_key scripts I've copied to this location.


Thanks in advance

Those are all standard Unraid events and have not changed in a long time.


I would not suggest you change them as that could have unforeseen side-effects - you should be able to what you want via the ‘go’ file I think

ok thank you, now I was able to found my problem.

I had to add chmod u+x to the delete_key and fetch_key scripts within my go file.

The /boot is a vfat formated stick so it doesn't understand these rights.

So now its working :)

I'm also another Bitlocker transplant looking for a similar solution or even an auto-decrypt with a stored key. I'm not trying to keep out the NSA or hackers (a $5 wrench would beat the password out of a determined attacker anyway). I just don't want my files to be recoverable if a drive fails and I need to dispose of it.

did anyone try to use this with a cloud service ? and can you change the passphrase or in order to change you have to format HDD again ?
