Volume Encryption - Known issues or caveats

Guys looking at implementation volume encryption to satisfy data at rest encryption requirements. Using C-Mode 9.3. Wondering if any horror stores from the field or gotchas before we implement! Using Gemalto key store.

Are you planning to use the onboard key manager or external?

External with a product provided by Gemalto.

I totally missed that while reading your post yesterday, sorry about that!  

 

Not really any "gotchas"  that I can think of with 9.3.   But there are some out there in general,  for example.  upgrading ONTAP 9.1 to 9.3 they had users decrypt the their disks during an upgrade.    

 

I would also test connection to the external key mangers during boot up too before you actually encrypt the disks.  

 

And review the power guide before you start doing it.  https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMLP2572742
