ONTAP Recipes: Did you know you can…?
Easily convert (Inplace) a plaintext volume to encrypted in ONTAP 9.3
1) If the cluster is configured with Onboard/External Key-manager and VE is licensed , then use the below commands to convert an existing plaintext volume to encrypted
>>volume encryption conversion start –volume <> -vserver <>
This will start encryption scan on the volume and converts all existing data to encrypted form.
New incoming data will be written in encrypted form also .
2) You can check the status of the conversion using
>>volume encryption conversion status –volume <> -vserver <>
