  • ONTAP 9
  • NetApp Volume Encryption (NVE)

Answer

  • Yes. The FlexClone volume must first be split from the original volume.
  • A warning message tells the user to perform a volume move to give the split clone a new encryption key.
  • After the user performs the volume move, the split clone has a new encryption key.
