We are using NetApp 9.4 and would like to enable encryption at rest. After running the following command successfully:
security key-manager setup
We are presented with the following error when trying to either create a new or convert an existing volume with encryption enabled.
Reason: Node "XXX" failed to allocate encryption resources. Please retry later or reboot the node
The documentation does not mention that a reboot may be required. Is there something we have missed or is there another problem. Previous posts on the forum suggest that rebooting the nodes will work. I am also not sure what the impact would be of rebooting one of our 2 nodes. Will the client have to reconnect ?
Any guidance on this issue is much appreciated.
PS: The support site seems to be down so I wasn't able to raise a support case for this.
After waiting for several hours the command completed successfully. We are still not quite sure what the root cause was or what changed to allow the command to complete successfully. In any case for now this has been resolved by waiting for 6 hours. We did try to run the command 1 and 2 hours afterwards the initial setup, but it still failed with the same error.
