hello Everyone,

I have a requirement which I need to apply Azure Disk Encryption on all the virtual machine disks, while this is a straight forward process; however I am not able to apply ADE on cluster disk (a shared disk between two cluster machines, it only goes online at one machine at a time).

Any guidance would be appreciated, thanks.

Azure Disk Encryption
An Azure service for virtual machines (VMs) that helps address organizational security and compliance requirements by encrypting the VM boot and data disks with keys and policies that are controlled in Azure Key Vault.

    Looks like this is an unsupported scenario as of today :
