Adding disks in a Metrocluster aggr

Hello ,

I have 2 FAS6210 in a metrocluster setup. The aggregates which are in sync mirror relationship is pretty much full. I am expecting addition of more disk shelves pretty soon. Once I have new disk I plan toadd the disks on agregates in syncmirror relationship. What is the best procedure to add disks in a MC setup in a sync mirror aggr?

Site A:

FAS6210 : aggr01 (supppose if I have to add 20 disks)

Site B:

FAS6210: aggr01 (I will add 20 disks )

Regards

Rahul

Re: Adding disks in a Metrocluster aggr

You assign disks to pool0 and pool1 and then simply use “aggr add” command. It will automatically select disks from pool0 and pool1 to keep mirror. In your example you will need to add 40 disks: “aggr add aggr01 40”. You may use “-n” to preview disk selection and use usual qualifiers like desired disk size to disambiguate.
