aggr add in a metrocluster

Hello,

I am on a IBM nserie in a metrocluster concept.

I have an aggr aggrCapsSataCifs who is active in only plex1

Aggregate aggrCapsSataCifs (online, raid_dp) (block checksums)
Plex /aggrCapsSataCifs/plex1 (online, normal, active, pool1)
RAID group /aggrCapsSataCifs/plex1/rg0 (normal, block checksums)

I would like to assign this disk to my aggregate to begin the syncmirror processe

aggr add aggrCapsSataCifs -d SW-METRO-CAPS-B:5.126L12 SW-METRO-CAPS-B:5.126L13 SW-METRO-CAPS-B:5.126L14 SW-METRO-CAPS-B:5.126L17

but it's say that I am in the wrong pool and that I should use the -f option

aggr add: Disk 'SW-METRO-CAPS-B:5.126L12' is from the wrong pool. Use the -f option to override this check.

Why does it say that. and can I use -F options

thanks for your help.


Re: aggr add in a metrocluster

You need to use disks from pool1, as in you aggregate.
