disk show not listing the drives but they appear if you execute disk_list

disk show -v

disk show: No disks match the option show

however i do see them when i ussue the disk_list command

however, taking that one step firther

disk assign 0a.00.1 -f

disk assign: Could not find any unowned disks to assign

what am I missing

Re: disk show not listing the drives but they appear if you execute disk_list

When assigning disks use the -n option

i.e. disk assign -n 10

Would assign 10 spindles, if you have mixed disk types use the -T aswell

i.e. disk assign -T sas - n 10 for SAS

disk assign - T bsas - n 10 for SATA

Re: disk show not listing the drives but they appear if you execute disk_list

Had something just like this recently.  When the command disk show -n doesn't display any unowned disks but when you run the disk show -a and you see your disks present.

You may only need to put them into the "unowned" mode.

Try this command:  disk assign <disk id number> -s  unowned -f.

Then run your disk show -n and see if it is now unowned.  If it is, then do this command to all the drives you are trying to take ownership of.

When done run: disk  assign all.

This should now add the drives to your Netapp as owned drives.

Keep in mind that the disk.auto_assign must be on.

To view this just type options  disk and look for disk.auto_assign.  If it is set to "off" you can turn it on by typing options disk.auto_assign on

Hope this helps.

Best of luck.
