Re: Query about flashpool ?

Hi Shylendradi,

 

How many disks you are going to add in to your aggregate ???? And Is your OnTap 7-Mode or Cluster Mode ????

 

Remeber that there is minimum requirement of Disk to create a FLASH POOL 

 

FAS3100 and FAS3200 min requirement is 3+2 ( 3 data + 2 Parity )

 

FAS6000 and FAS6200 is 9+2 ( 9 Data + 2 Parity )

 

 

 

Step 1:- You Need to enable Hybrid on your aggregate in order to have flash pool

 

7- Mode

 

aggr options aggr_name hybrid_enabled on

 

Cluster Mode 

 

storage aggregate modify -aggregate aggr_name -hybrid_enabled true

 

 

Step 2:- Now you can add disks using their DISK ID's , If you have more than one Raid Group you have to choose which RG 

 

7-Mode 

 

aggr add aggr_name -T SSD 6@100

 

cluster Mode

 

storage aggregate add-disks -aggregate aggr-name -disktype SSD -diskcount 3

 

 

You can verify If it is enabled as below

 

7-Mode

 

aggr status -v aggr_name

 

Cluster Mode

 

storage aggregate show -aggregate aggr_name

 

 

Once done now you need to create READ or WRITE policies in the Aggregate , Please follow the guide to create policies
