--- Comment #1 from Fabian Keil <fk at fabiankeil.de> ---
Are you trying to restore the meta data while the provider is attached?

By default this is not allowed.

If you absolutely want to do it, you can set the
"allow foot shooting" bit. For details see geom(4).

fk at r500 ~ $sudo geli attach /dev/md0
Enter passphrase: 
fk at r500 ~ $sudo geli restore /var/backups/md0.eli /dev/md0
geli: Cannot write metadata to /dev/md0: Operation not permitted.
fk at r500 ~ $sudo sysctl kern.geom.debugflags=16
kern.geom.debugflags: 0 -> 16
fk at r500 ~ $sudo geli restore /var/backups/md0.eli /dev/md0
fk at r500 ~ $sudo sysctl kern.geom.debugflags=0
kern.geom.debugflags: 16 -> 0
