  • ONTAP 9
  • NetApp Volume Encryption (NVE)
  • NetApp Aggregate Encryption (NAE)
  • NetApp Storage Encryption (NSE)

Answer

  1. Perform one of the following steps for the appropriate encryption type:
    1. NetApp Storage Encryption (NSE):
      • Reset the authentication keys to the default manufacturer secure ID (MSID), 0x0.
    2. NetApp Volume Encryption (NVE): 
      • Unencrypt all volumes
    3. NetApp Aggregate Encryption (NAE):
      • Move all NAE or NVE volumes to a non-NAE aggregate as non-encrypted.
  2. If you're coming from OKM, delete the OKM configuration and create the external key manager configuration.
  3. If you're coming from the external key manager, delete the external key manager configuration and create the OKM configuration.
  4. Finally, set authentication keys for NSE drives and encrypt required volumes with NVE.
