Prepares volume encryption for releases earlier than Data ONTAP 9.1.0

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the advanced privilege level.


The volume encryption prepare-to-downgrade command prepares nodes to downgrade to a release earlier than ONTAP 9.1.0. Prior to disabling the features, the command checks whether the features are in use and if they are then, the command provides instructions for removing the use of the features.


The following example will disable the Volume Encryption features that are new to Data ONTAP 9.1.0 in the local cluster:

cluster1::> volume encryption prepare-to-downgrade
