Operations Manager not showing physical space/drives


When reviewing Operations Manager, I have a system not reporting physical disk space.  Well, it reports the spare disks only.

dfm report view disks filer only reports the spares also.

What can I look at to determine why the physical isn't showing up in dfm?





Hi Tom,

   What do you mean by physical disk? Are you looking for unassigned disk? If so dfm doesn't report on them.

You can also look at disks-all report.




Hi Adai,

     I'm referring to the Physical Space portion of the Operations Manager, Member Details, Physical Systems. There should be Data Disks, Parity Disks, and Spare Disks...all I'm getting is Spare Disks for a particular system. Storage Capacity section appears to be correct.

     From Operations Manager, Reports, All, Disks, Available Reports/All Disks, Resource of this particular system...only displays the spare disks.

     I'm approaching this from a reporting aspect, having to learn administration for good reporting. I'm not familiar with assigning. I assume the disks are assigned since there are aggregates, etc.

Pointers welcome. Thank you for responding.


From the command line, sysconfig -r gives correct information. How is dfm/Operations Manager getting the information?

I do get correct information with other systems...something about this one is different and has me stumped.




Hi Tom,

     I need some more details,

  1. Whats version and mode of OCUM
  2. What Version is of ONTAP is the controller running ?
  3. Can you give an example of screenshot for a controller that's working and one which isn't ?
  4. What kind of disk are those ? The ones which arent being reported ? Like type of disk, size etc ?
  5. what is the dfm host diag for the controller returning ?




Let's see what I can do:

     1) 5.1  7-mode

     2) 8.1.2  -- the only controller running that version...I wonder if this is the issue??

     3) no...a lot of editing.

     4) 827.7GB SATA

     5) Below is part of the result. I've removed hostname/ipaddress/etc. This is a readonly setup. The rsh/ssh is the same from the other working controllers.
