Disks assignement issue from fresh new configuration

Hi NetApp Community,

 

I'm new NetApp user and I'm currently working with a FAS 2552 with 24 SAS disks and I've just made a factory reset cause the configuration went wrong.

Now my 2 controllers are booting and on the boot prompt when my controller first booting, it shows :

"Successfully autopartitioned 11 of 11 disks" for one controller and

"Successfully autopartitioned 10 of 10 disks" for the second controller

 

So i'im asking why there's no 12 disks per controller (I mean 50/50 disks assignation) ? cause in my case i think lose capacity.

 

I found informations about that on NetApp Community but not specially for my case.

 

Do someone knows what happened ? I know there's things about root aggregate or disk assignement but why ?

 

Thank you for reading and answering !

 

Gael

What does the following show?

:: > disk show -container-type unassigned

 

If the disks are unassigned, you'd need to assign them to the appropriate nodes using "disk assign."

 

:: > disk assign -all true -node [nodename]

Re: Disks assignement issue from fresh new configuration

Hi, they're all assigned, but I think I found a solution, I unowned one disk and reassign it to an other controller, so know I got 11disks+1 spare on each controller so it's ok.

 

Now i've got an other problem with snapmirroring. I create load-sharing mirror for 2 specifical volume but one can't be initialized.

 

Take a look :

Roval_Cluster::> snapmirror show
                                                                       Progress

                                      Idle           -         -       -

Re: Disks assignement issue from fresh new configuration

What happens when you run:

 

:: > snapmirror initialize-ls-set {tab complete the rest of the command}

 

for that relationship?

Re: Disks assignement issue from fresh new configuration

I don't have any error, look :

 

Roval_Cluster::> snapmirror initialize-ls-set -source-path VM_SAN_1:VM_SAN_root_vol1
[Job 162] Job is queued: snapmirror initialize-ls-set for source "Roval_Cluster://VM_SAN_1/VM_SAN_root_vol1".

Roval_Cluster::>

Then i type snapmirror show and I always have :

Roval_Cluster::> snapmirror show
                                                                       Progress

                                      Idle           -         false   -
                 Roval_Cluster://VM_SAN_1/LS2_root_vol1
                              Uninitialized
                                      Idle           -         -       -
2 entries were displayed.

My relationship don't return errors but I don't know why one is snapmirrored,idle and false, and the other : uninitialized,idle. Something's wrong but what ?

 

Thanks

Re: Disks assignement issue from fresh new configuration

Have you opened a support case? This is going to take more effort than what can be done effectively on this forum.

Re: Disks assignement issue from fresh new configuration

Not yet cause I didn't want to abuse of the service cause I thought it was an easy issue for NetApp users Smiley Wink

Thank you for your help , i'll open a case and see with NetApp support ! Robot Happy

Re: Disks assignement issue from fresh new configuration

The disk one, yes.

 

The snapmirror one will require some work. Smiley Happy
