You need to assign the disk to one of the controllers first. After it's assigned you can add it to an aggr or spare pool or whatever.

 

1. 'disk show -n' should show you all of the unassigned disks and their ID's.

2. 'sysconfig -a' will show you the controller serial numbers and controller ID's.

3. 'disk assign' will allow you to assign said disk to said controller ID.

4. 'disk assign all' from one of the nodes CLI will assign all remaining unassigned disks to that particular controller.

5. 'aggr status -r' OR 'sysconfig -r' will show you a breakdown of the raid groups and spare disks.

 

All of the commands above are for 7-mode and should be run without the quotes. If it's CDOT then the commands will differ slightly.

Re: unowned disk reminder in console message

In continous with the previous discussion I would like to inform you that we have 2 controllers

 

FAS A and FAS B.

 

 

And I have done all activity in FAS A.

 

Now pls tell me whether the same activity needs to be done in FAS B Also ?

Re: unowned disk reminder in console message

Hi Sunil,

 

 

If 'disk show -n' reports no results, then all of your disks are successfully assigned. 

 

If you run the 'disk assign' command on node A then the disks you specified will be assigned to node A. You can check the disk and raid group configuration on node A by typing in the 'sysconfig -r' or 'aggr status -r' command on node A's CLI session.

 

If you run the 'disk assign' command on node B then the disks you specified will be assigned to node B. You can check the disk and raid group configuration on node B by typing in the 'sysconfig -r' or 'aggr status -r' command on node B's CLI session.

 

You can find more information on disk assignment via page 45 of the Storage Administration Guide for your specific version of ONTAP which 'sysconfig -a' was showing to be 7.3.3:

Re: unowned disk reminder in console message

I'm afraid I do not understand your question. 

 

You said, "it is also showing on node B."  What exactly are you referring to?
