Dear NetApp Gurus,

Would you please advice the process to swap a disk into spare disk?

Thanks in advance + Happy Wednesday

Hmm, I'm not quite sure what do you mean by that - removing a disk from aggregate?

The only way to accomplish this is to destroy an aggregate unfortunately.

Yes Radek,

Would you please share the procedure of destroy an aggregate to making a spare disk?

Thanks in advance + Happy Wednesday

Hi Henry,

I am thinking below cli might do what you want

   disk zero spares

The OS will take the data from this disk to another spare, after the copy is done, it will mark it as spare.

Test it if you can.

Thanks

Glen
