Automatically encrypt all volume setting?

Is there a setting that allows all new volumes to be encrypted? Like a global setting that allows me to switch it on, rather than ensuring that each new volume has the    -encrypted true  attribute appended to the end of every volume create command?

 

Thanks

I couldn't find much out there,  but give this a read over.

Thanks for the help!

 

I have tested and can confirm it works.

Good to hear. 

 

 I am kind of wondering why I couldn't find "bootarg.softwareencryption.encryptallvol=true" in the ONTAP9 document center though.  Maybe someone from NetApp will link to the actual docs.
