As part of a routine OnDemand system move and version upgrade the additional requirement is to move the IFS archived objects from the system ASP01 to an Encrypted User ASP (take advantage of encryption at rest of the disk drives of IBM i systems using 57XX-SS1 Option 45 Encrypted ASP Enablement, where you end up with an unencrypted system ASP 1 and an encrypted ASP). In this case, the system ASP on the new system has been intentionally created very small, as all user objects should be stored in the encrypted ASP02. 

Is this possible?  Are there documented steps anywhere to use as a guide? 

Thanks,
Joe

Yes, encrypted ASP is possible - is supported . 
High level steps  after OS has the disk pool defined as encrypted,  identify the disk pool to OnDemand via Nav for i , then add a storage level to your policy, disable the previous disk pool level;  use CHGPLDOND for ASM to move the objects along to the new encrypted ASP.
