Clone split fails with error: Clone and the parent volumes are in different Vservers

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • FlexClone
  • NetApp Volume Encryption (NVE)
  • NetApp Aggregate Encryption (NAE)


The clone split operation fails due to the parent and clone volumes being hosted in different vservers and using the same encryption key:

::> volume clone split start -vserver vserver1 -flexclone vol_flexclone1 -foreground true

Error: [Job 4382] Job failed: Clone and the parent volumes are in different Vservers, but are using the same Vserver level encryption-key. Vserver level encryption-key needs to be changed before the clone split. In order to change the Vserver level encryption-key, either do clone volume rekey or clone volume rehost
