Adding Spare disk to existing aggregate

[ Edited ]

I need some pointers on adding a spare disk to a new aggregate. I want to add a single disk to a aggregate consisting of two raid groups.

my info FAS2240-4 8.1P1

 

sysconfig -r
Aggregate aggr0 (online, raid_dp) (block checksums)
Plex /aggr0/plex0 (online, normal, active, pool0)
RAID group /aggr0/plex0/rg0 (normal, block checksums)

Can I proceed with: aggr add aggr0 -f -g rg0 0a.00.6 ? and will I need to resize the aggregate afterwards or will it happen automatically?

Re: Adding Spare disk to existing aggregate

If you want to add a single disk, you will need to expand the size of the raid group, I'm assuming that it is currently 11. If you increase it to 12, you can add the single disk to one of the existing raid groups. The disk space will be automatically part of the available aggregate size after adding.
