ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

security key-manager external disable

Disable external key management

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


This command disables the external key manager associated with the given Vserver. If the key manager is in use by ONTAP, you cannot disable it. When disabling the external key manager associated with the admin Vserver, you must run the same command on the peer cluster. When disabling the external key manager for a data Vserver, you can run the security key-manager external disable command on the active cluster only, as the command is replicated on the peer cluster. This command is not supported when the Onboard Key Manager is enabled for the given Vserver.


-vserver <vserver name> - Vserver Name

Use this parameter to specify the Vserver on which the external key manager is to be disabled.


The following example removes the external key manager for Vserver cluster-1:

cluster-1::*> security key-manager external disable -vserver cluster-1
Warning: This command will permanently delete the external key management
 configuration for Vserver "cluster-1".
