Time Machine not advertised after unlocking dataset until SMB is manually restarted

      Description

      SMB shares pointing to password-encrypted datasets are not visible for use by Time Machine after they are unlocked until SMB is manually restarted.

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Set up a password encrypted dataset

      2. Create a Time Machine share on the encrypted dataset

      3. Reboot TrueNAS

      4. Unlock the dataset

      5. On a Mac, notice the share isn't visible to Time Machine, and that TrueNAS doesn't advertise _smb._tcp over mDNS

      6. Stop and start the SMB service on TrueNAS

      7. On a Mac, notice that the share is now visible to Time Machine, and that TrueNAS advertises _smb._tcp over mDNS

       

      With legacy GELI encryption, unlocking a pool would restart services including SMB automatically. Perhaps something like that isn't happening with the new native encryption implementation.

       

      The attached debug is from a test VM I set up just to make sure I could reproduce this issue.
