Modification of key IDs on an NSE disk fails due to missing key ID in key cache

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • NetApp Storage Encryption (NSE)
  • Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS)
  • External Key Manager (EKM)


  • Setting the data key ID to 0x0 on a specific NSE disk fails with the below error:

::> storage encryption disk modify -disk 1.0.4 -data-key-id 0x0

Error: Setting the data key ID to the manufacture secure ID is not allowed when in FIPS-compliance mode.

  • The command to modify the fips-key-id to 0x0 executes without errors, but it does not complete successfully:

::> storage encryption disk modify -disk 1.0.4 -fips-key-id 0x0

Info: Starting modify on 1 disk on node Node-02.
      View the status of the operation by using the "storage encryption disk show-status" command.

::> storage encryption disk show-status

  • The data-key-id and fips-key-id of that specific disk are different from the other disks:

::> storage encryption disk show -fields fips-key-id,data-key-id
disk       data-key-id                              fips-key-id

  • An attempt to restore the keys says there are no keys to be restored:

::> security key-manager restore
No keys need to be restored
