adding new disks to a local syncmirror

We have a FAS3020 (7.2.5.1) with an aggregate called FC_INFO_21, this is syncmirrored with two pelxes, each containing 11 300gb FC disks.

We have attached two more shelves and wish too add those disks in to the existing aggregate.

In filerview, I select the aggr, click Add Disks and follow the aggregate wizard to the point where we can do Manual Disk Selection. It shows Pool0 and Pool1, both are empty and we can't select any to add?

Here is the output of sysconfig -r, which shows we have set the new FC disks as spare and assigned them to the correct pools.

nhc-na02> sysconfig -r

Does anyone have any ideas why we can't add the new disks?

Re: adding new disks to a local syncmirror

Hi-

Hi-

I would try adding the disk via the command line as it may spit out an error message at least pointing you in the right direction. Here is a link to these commands:

Re: adding new disks to a local syncmirror

Hi,

I did aggr add FC_INFO_21 2 at the console and it worked fine. For some reason it won't let me add them through filerview!?

Should I be worried by that?
