use disks from another HA pair

What is the process of using Disks from another controller of the same model and type as replacements.

 

I have been trying to add disks that came from another controller and I am able to get the incoming disk in an unowned state.

 

NAMIA01*> disk show -n
DISK          OWNER        POOL        SERIAL NUMBER        HOME
------------ - ------------ ----- ------------- -------------
0d.02.10       Not Owned   NONE        YFGU75UA

 

 

 

 

However when ever I try to add to the currentl controller I get this msg

 

 

disk assign 0d.02.10 -o NAMIA01
Wed Dec 14 10:15:58 EST [NAMIA01:diskown.changingOwner:info]: changing ownership for disk 0d.02.10 (S/N YFGU75UA) from unowned (ID 4294967295) to NAMIA01 (ID 142241680)

Wed Dec 14 10:15:59 EST [NAMIA01:raid.assim.tree.dupName:notice]: Duplicate aggregate names found, an instance of foreign:aggr1 is being renamed to foreign:aggr1(1).

 

 

 

How can I completly wipe this disk and any other from the Offlined controller so I can use these disks as replacements?

'disk zero spares' ?

You may need to destroy the aggr1(1) aggr before it will zero ...
