We are looking into setting up Cloudera Navigator Encrypt to properly encrpyt some Kudu data that we have. Most pieces with the Encrypt install seem pretty straight forward, however I have a few questions.
-Does Encrypt need to be installed on all of the hosts that will have the encrypted data?
-Since we are going to be encrypting multiple Kudu disks, is it best to create an LVM with all of the disks so a single mount point can then be encrypted?

For anyone that stumbles upon this same issue I'll porived some details.
-Encrypt goes onto every machine that will have data which needs to be encrypted. In our case that is the kudu masters and tablets.
-LVM was setup and mounted through Navencrypt. With 3 replicas setup we were ok with the fact of losing a tablet server entirely, should a disk fail.
