i have FAS 6130 with 1 shelf SAS connected. (1aggr)
i want to add 1 more shelf, but SATA disks (12 SATA disks)
the setps are:
1 - connect the new shelf to the controller with the SAA cable
2 - assign the new disks to the conroller, how? (with disk assign command, any aother way?)
3 - add the new assigned disks to new aggr with oncommand system manager RAID type: RAID-DP, right?
1 spare disk.

It's horses for courses - one hot-spare means more capacity to use; two hot-spares enable drive maintenance, which can investigate a 'dodgy' disk in the background & copy data across before it fails, rather than do a fully-blown RAID rebuild.
