Applies to

  • NetApp Storage Encryption (NSE)

Answer

No, this is not supported.
  • FIPS drives, drives that  conform to the requirements of Federal Information Processing Standard, cannot be mixed with other types of drives on the same node or HA pair. Conforming HA pairs can coexist with non-conforming HA pairs in the same cluster.
  • SEDs, self-encrypting NVMe drives that have not undergone FIPS, can be mixed with non-SEDs on the same node or HA pair.

Note: Starting with ONTAP 9.6, SEDs drives are supported on AFF A800 and A320 systems.
