Applies to

  • Onboard Key Manager (OKM)
  • ONTAP 9.0 and later

Description

  • Onboard Key Manager (OKM) has a backup feature that will allow for recovery in disaster scenarios.  
  • It is recommended that every OKM instance has current backups stored offsite in a secure location. 
  • In the event of a head swap, cfcard replacement or cfcard corruption, manual recovery of the keys has to be performed.

Note: All nodes within the same cluster can use the other node's backup hex dump output in the event a recovery is needed.
