Replacing a failed disk - spare

SPF

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

aladd

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
