The kinematic evolution of axisymmetric magnetic and electric fields is investigated numerically in Kerr geometry for a simplified Keplerian disk near a rotating black hole. In the cases investigated it is found that a magnetic field cannot be sustained against ohmic diffusion. In flat space this result is known as Cowling’s antidynamo theorem.
