Hi!

Just add them to the aggregate using 'aggr add <aggregate_name> -d <id_of_disk1>  <id_of_disk2>.

You will maybe need to change the aggregate raidsize.

you can identify the disk ID using 'vol status -s' and then get the 'device id' ( something like 0c.00.11 )

Didier instructions are correct.

You can also download the OnCommand System Manager for a rich gui to manage your NetApp.

It's good for manager your NetApp for tasks like these, without having to familiarize yourself with NetApp commands you only use once in a blue moon.
