Hi, I'm on the stage of the first setup of a FAS 2720 (with 3 DS212C and 48 disks in total) and System Manager ask me on "Prepare Storage" if I want setup Onboard Key Manager. I'm looking for performance, and I have to migrate data from a FAS 2554 with no-DARE Ontap version. So I will choose to "Continue without "Onboard Key Manager" setup. Is it a correct choice? Thanks

heads up - you'll want to use the DAR image going forward on the 27xx.  

 

That's a default prompt for new cluster setup now to help enforce DAR.   If you're planning to use NVE or NAE it's worth setting up, but you can go back and enabled / encrypt later if you want.
