Hi,

 

Try using  security key-manager key show. Refer KB https://kb.netapp.com/support/s/article/ka21A0000000jyiQAA/OKM-Onboad-Key-Manager-authentication-key-creation-and-application-to-NSE-drives 

http://docs.netapp.com/ontap-9/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.netapp.doc.dot-cm-cmpr-920%2Fsecurity__key-manager__update-passphrase.html Update passphrase needs you to enter existing passphrase.

Hi,

 

The problem is I don't have the current passphrase, so I can not use "security key-manager update-passphrase".

There is a key-manager delete-key-database which will clear the configuration and allow you to run the setup again with a new passphrase.

I would move the data to new volumes to decrypt first.

The documentation suggests that command needs the passphrase which we don't know. Anyone had any success resetting the passphrase?

cluster1::*>security key-manager delete-key-database

Warning: This command will permanently delete all keys from onboard key management.
Do you want to continue? {y|n}: y

Enter the passphrase::
