Issue

The process to convert a 'plaintext' volume to an encrypted NVE volume may appear to be slow or stuck in Phase 2.

This articles explains the NVE phases and what can be done to speed up the conversion process.

When running the command,

“volume encryption conversion show”

the status shows as “in-progress” for a very long time. The output may be similar to the following:

cluster-01::> volume encryption conversion show
 

Vserver     Volume     Start Time    Status
-------     --------   -----------   -----------------------
Svm1 vol1.  7/2/2019   06:33:03      Phase 2 of 2 is in-progress
