Adding New Disks in to DS4243

Hi All ,

We are going to add 12 new disks in to DS4243 and im looking forward if you people can help me how to proceed on this. As i have got some steps to perform please cross check and let me know if anything needs to be added.

1) As soon as adding the disks in to the disk shelf they will spin and they will be shown as unassigned disks

2) Check the unassigned disks using command FAS01> disk show -n

3) Now assign the disk to respective filer ( As we have 2-Node Active - Active Cluster FAS2040 )

FAS01> disk assign <FAS01>  <disk id>

Here i have one question how as i am adding 12( 300GB ) disks i will be getting a space of 3432GB of total now how i am going to increase the size of my aggregate i mean

i can just give

FAS01> aggr size aggr0 + <size>

Will the above command will do the needful for me to increase the size of the aggregate else do i need to do something else , please advise.

Thanks,

Nayab
