Default Encrypting gvinum raid5


Is there any method to use encrypted raid5 volumes?
i created the raid5 volume with gvinum, works fine, but when i try to
encrypt it:
geli init -P -K /root/enc.key /dev/gvinum/raid5
it says:
Cannot store Metadata....
any ideas?
thank you!

you can make huge empty file(huge one). Attach it with mdconfig and use it as regular disk.
