This was my replication task in #19.

I changed the settings to "Full Filesystem Replication". And voilá: I can unlock replicated "iocage" with entering once the password for all datasets :)

All these settings confused my a lot. But now it is fine. Thanks @winnielinnie for your help once again :)

Glad it's working now. :smile:

I'll be honest, I don't use the GUI ("Replication Tasks"), but rather a script that uses zfs send/recv. The GUI has been ambiguous for me, and it's not immediately clear what each option does behind-the-scenes.

Either way, nothing is "fine" until you can verify that you can unlock the backup datasets and access the files within. (You can browse with the command-line if you don't want to create SMB shares just to peek inside. At minimum, check the contents of a text file to make sure the data doesn't look "scrambled".)

Keep in mind that you should not modify or write anything to the backup datasets. Doing so can interfere with your replications.
