About this task

All key management information is automatically backed up to the replicated database (RDB) for the cluster. You should also back up key management information manually for use in case of a disaster.

Steps

  1. Change to advanced privilege level: set -privilege advanced
  2. Display the key management backup information for the cluster:
    For this ONTAP version... Use this command...
    ONTAP 9.6 and later security key-manager onboard show-backup
    ONTAP 9.5 and earlier security key-manager backup show
    For complete command syntax, see the man pages.
    Example

    The following 9.6 command displays the key management backup information for cluster1:

    cluster1::> security key-manager onboard show-backup
