Issue

Attempt to enable NAE on an aggregate with only NVE encrypted data volumes present fails. There are no SVM root or non-encrypted volumes on the aggregate:
 
cluster::> volume show -encrypt false -aggregate aggr1
There are no entries matching your query.


cluster::>storage aggregate modify -aggregate aggr1 -encrypt-with-aggr-key true I get the following error

Error: command failed: Failed to modify the aggregate "aggr1" since it contains non-encrypted volumes. Run the "volume show -encrypt false" command to get the list of non-encrypted volumes. Convert all of them to NVE (NetApp Volume Encryption) volumes and try again later.
