16.5 Moving or Splitting Encrypted NSS Volumes

We strongly advise against using the Move Volume or Split Volume tasks for encrypted NSS volumes because of the following security considerations:

  • You can move or split data only to a newly created NSS volume. NSS encrypted volume support is available only for volumes created in NSSMU, so the target volume is necessarily an NSS volume that is not encrypted.

  • The data is transferred nonencrypted from the encrypted NSS volume to the nonencrypted target volume where the data is stored nonencrypted.

WARNING:If you use the Move Volume or Split Volume tasks on an encrypted NSS volume, the relocated data is stored nonencrypted in its new location. It is no longer secure.
