Unencrypt volume data

Contributors

You can use the volume move start command to move and unencrypt volume data.

What you’ll need

You must be a cluster administrator to perform this task, or an SVM administrator to whom the cluster administrator has delegated authority.

Steps
  1. Move an existing encrypted volume and unencrypt the data on the volume:

    volume move start -vserver SVM_name -volume volume_name -destination-aggregate aggregate_name -encrypt-destination false

    For complete command syntax, see the man page for the command.

    The following command moves an existing volume named vol1 to the destination aggregate aggr3 and unencrypts the data on the volume:

    cluster1::> volume move start -vserver vs1 -volume vol1 -destination-aggregate aggr3 -encrypt-destination false

    The system deletes the encryption key for the volume. The data on the volume is unencrypted.

  2. Verify that the volume is disabled for encryption:

    volume show -encryption

    For complete command syntax, see the man page for the command.

    The following command displays whether volumes on cluster1 are encrypted:

    cluster1::> volume show -encryption
    
    Vserver  Volume   Aggregate   State    Encryption State
    -------  ------   ---------   -----    ----------------
    vs1      vol1     aggr1       online   none
