Can not create any Aggregate because of sufficient disk

Hey everyone,

 

I have running an Netapp Ontab  7.3.7P1

and i want to create an Aggregate, but when i do this the server tells me he has not enough disk:

"You do not have sufficient spare disks to create a 'RAID-DP' aggregate."

 

but i see that three disk are used for the root Aggregat and the other disk are "empty"

thank you for your help

Re: Can not create any Aggregate because of sufficient disk

Those are on your partner node.. You need to log into partner and run aggr status -s

 

That current node has no spares which is bad

Re: Can not create any Aggregate because of sufficient disk

As in the other reply, you need to have spare disks on your controller to create an aggregate.

 

you need a minimum 3 drives to create a RAID-DP aggregate as you need one data and two partiy drives.

 

the drives showing as partner are owned by the other controller in what will be a HA system, you need to connect to that and see if you have spare drives there.

 

however in a small system like this, i would suggest you may not need more aggregates.

 

what are you trying to achieve?
