Re: disk replace command fails

According to your `sysconfig -r` output it appears as a partner disk yet in `disk show` it appears as being owned by this filer. You could try forcing the issue with a `disk reassign` to see if that corrects the situation, provided it's only a spare of course!

Re: disk replace command fails

Minor correction to the above post.

disk show , "NETAPP" is the vendor signature for the disk, not to be confused with the hostname of filer "netapp".

This disk belongs to its partner, you need to run the disk replace command from partner filer.

Also make sure 3c.10.21 is the correct spare disk name, you can check the status by sysconfig -r on the partner node.
