36 SSD disks, how to create aggregates

[ Edited ]

for total of 36 SSD disks ( one and half shelve) on 2 AFF HA nodes, how would you create aggregates, and how many for spares?

 

currently, half of them (18 ssd's) is owned by node-1, and the other half is owned by node-2

 

 

thanks!

Hey ,

You can keep 1 disk as spare on each node and use the remaining disks to create your aggregate.

This would be around 34 disks for data aggregate, considering that root aggregate is already present for each node.

You can achieve this by forcing disk ownership from second node to first node leaving one spare on each node. After this, you can create aggregate using 34 disks.

RDP creates, when you initialize your system. You need ONTAP v8.3.x+
