We have recently acquired the NVE license for an existing system FAS2750 running ONTAP 9.4P5. The idea is to perform the "volume encryption conversion start" command on all existing volumes. We already have Onboard Key Manager enabled.
When we try to run the encryption conversion in any volume we receive the following error:
Error: command failed: Failed to start conversion on volume "CIFS_Data_01" in Vserver "SVM_CIFS". Reason: Node "clustermad-02" failed to allocate encryption resources. Please retry later or reboot the node.
Has anyone been able to solve this error without rebooting the system?
That's an interesting one, are you able to create a new, encrypted volume from scratch on either node?
I'm wondering if this is support ticket-worthy, the only hardware requirement as far as I know is the processor needs to support the AES-NI instruction set which the one in the FAS2750 definitely does.
