Seeking for commands to create a BIG aggr(64bit), including all unused disks on the filer, without specififying any disk names?
I have 4 shelves, and 23-24 disk each, the aggr will include 5RG's DP, and 3 hot spares.
Also, after some tests, i would probably destroy the aggr, would this have any impact to allow me to re-create?

would you please elabrate a little bit more on the syntax? I have 93 disks, plan to have 5 raid-dp with 18 disks each, and 3 spares. The following works for you? and do the same on the other filer? since this is going to be done from scratch, do i need to create pool first?
aggr create aggr1 -B 64 -r 18 -T SAS -t raid-dp

if you don't want to specify individual disks then you can do <ndisks>[@disk-size>]. So in your case, since I think you only have one size of disks, you can simply finish off your aggr create command above with 90.

do I need to specify raid group size? the following is good then?
aggr create aggr1 -B 64 -r 18 90
what about pool name, do i need to worry about pool name?
