Re: How to create a spare disk

You need to destroy foreign aggregate aggr0(1). Any disk not part of aggregate will be spare disk.

Re: How to create a spare disk

great, after i destoried aggr0(1), device 0c.00.9 becomes spare disk automaticly and the system's global staus also becomes normal.

thx man !
