Replacing a failed disk - spare

I had a disk fail in my NetApp 8.2.2 cluster, the hot spare took over, now i am trying to replace this drive and mark it as a spare.  I purchased the same brand, size and speed drive and switched out the failed drive... it is now showing up as TMINACL1-01:0b.00.8   broken init failed present - -
Usable Physical
Disk Outage Reason HA Shelf Bay Chan Pool Type RPM Size Size
--------------- ------------- ------------ ---- ------ ----- ------ -------- --------
TMINACL1-01:0b.00.8
init failed 0b 0 8 A NONE BSAS 7200 -

Thank you, SPF

Hello SPF,

 

Did you attempt to reseat the disk by keeping out atleast 60 sec? Also, is the shelf and DQP fw up-to date?

 

Regards,

Aman

Re: Replacing a failed disk - spare

ok.. i pulled the drive and waited for over 60 seconds.  Now i am seeing this ... so i think this is good news

 

TMINACL1-01:0b.00.8 - 0 8 unassigned present - -

 

not sure how to check the fw levels but i am sure it is not up to date.

Re: Replacing a failed disk - spare

Firmware revisions on disk can be seen from sysconfig -a output.

 

From a cluster system, you can issue the following.

 

::>node run -node {node name} sysconfig -a

I am glad, the reseat worked.


Assuming its a CDOT, here are the commands.

DQP:

> node run -node <nodename> -command rdfile /etc/qual_devices_v3

DISK/SHELF FW:

> node run -node <nodename> -command sysconfig -a   or sysconfig -v

 

If the are not upto-date, then follow download the latest FW and update.

Re: Replacing a failed disk - spare

You appear to have purchased a non-NetApp disk drive. ONTAP will not use it.

Re: Replacing a failed disk - spare

Really?  I would need to purchase a Netapp disk?  the one i purchased is the same brand, size and speed.

i have found the following procedure online .... does this look correct

priv set advanced
disk unfail -s <disk_name>
Repeat above steps for all disks that have failed

Reassign the disks to the storage node

 

Check disks are added as spares

aggr status -s
All disks should show as spares

disk zero spares

Re: Replacing a failed disk - spare

The firmware and disk labels installed on the drive are a custom NetApp version.  You would not have this on an "off the shelf" drive.
