In local Encryption Context , Customer have no wy to check encryption status. This lead into long run discussion with no ending when need to supply encryption evidence to SecurityAudit Team"

When only have  FC5272  using local encryption mgr, for data at rest .
VTS admin people cannot supply trustable evidences to  Security Team  about the encryption status.
