    @Othon Francois Dibwe Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here

    Enabling double encryption is only possible during cluster creation.
    Once infrastructure encryption is enabled on your cluster, you can't disable it. Double encryption of Azure Storage data protects against a scenario where one of the encryption algorithms or keys may be compromised.

    Enable infrastructure encryption for double encryption of data
