ADP2 spare disk assignment

Guys, what is the process of assigning spare disks in a root-data1-data2 config?  Is it simple as assigning data1 to node1 and data2 to node2 then not adding them to their respective aggregates?  The documentation on this matter is almost non-existant.  Thanx in advance.

Just leave the spare whole disk alone, assigned to either one of the HA partners. ONTAP will automatically partition the disk and assign the partitions, when needed.

Andris, thanx for the response.  I kinda found bread crumbs here and there and specifically, I've assigned one disk to each node at the container level and left it at that.
