Answer
 

Key information is held by the Replicated Database (RDB). When a node in the cluster goes down and looses one or more key ID, the cluster-wide passphrase will be used to restore them by syncing with RDB. In case of a disaster and loss of keys through the entirety of the cluster, onboard key-management information will be restored using the backup data gained when you run security key-manager backup show command.
 
You should copy onboard key management (OKM) information to a secure location outside the storage system whenever you configure the Onboard Key Manager passphrase. This is explained in Managing NetApp encryption
