Re: Disk Replacement

Hello,

 

How can you be sure that the specs from the "new" disk are the same if the label is missing ?

Can you have a look at a "aggr status -f" output and the "rdfile /etc/messages" output during the time you removed the old disk and replaced it with the new one ?

Re: Disk Replacement

Do you still see any failed disk when you look at the :

"aggr status -f"

output ?

 

Do you see the "new" disk as new spare with :

"aggr status -s"

?

Re: Disk Replacement

Hi,

In CDOT it could be that the new disk is unowned and thats why the led is abmer after replacement.
CLI:
> system node run * disk show -n
> system node run * vol status -f

Re: Disk Replacement

Hi, 

your spare disk is not a Netapp spare part. You can see it at the FW. Netapp FW is NA02 (NAxx).

Re: Disk Replacement

hi ,

 

thanks for your reply , so if i did disk firmware will solve the issue ?

 

 

Re: Disk Replacement

the system cannot work with this disk, normally it´s not possible to add Netapp FW on a disk with other FW
