I've just added more disks to my data aggregate. I want to stripe all existing data to old+new disks. How can I do this in C-mode?
In 7-mode it was reallocate start -f /vo/vol4
There is reallocate start command in c-mode, but I can't find description for it, so don't know what it really does.

Thank you Mark for quick reply.
Do you mean free space reallocation? I think it is no what I need.
Check page 5 of that TR for best practice. "Use forced reallocation after adding disks to an aggregate so that existing data is spread onto the new disks, reducing the time required to balance the load across all the disks"
I suppose it it:
reallocate start -vserver vs_name -path /vol/vol_name -force true
Can anybody confirm that this should be run after adding disks?

Look like the answer is in the same TR http://www.netapp.com/us/media/tr-3929-new.pdf
2.3 shows reallocate options
2.5 recommends to use force reallocation
Use forced reallocation after adding disks to an aggregate so that existing data is spread onto the new
disks, reducing the time required to balance the load across all the disks.

Could someone from netapp please reply with regards to the document being removed. Has it been superseeded, if so where is the new doc.
It appears this document (http://www.netapp.com/us/media/tr-3929-new.pdf) is no longer available.... I get a 404 error "File or Directory Not Found"
Do you know why?
