After I've removed and replaced a broken disk in our system (NetApp Release 8.3.2P9) I still see information about the removed disk. The disk ID 2.11.4 still gives the status "failed" en it even shows the serial number of the removed disk. An unassigned disk shows up and by the serial number I have verified that this is indeed the replacement disk in shelf 11, bay 4.
I've tried a number of things like eg. to unfail the disk 2.11.4 with the result "Disk "2.11.4" does not exist". I can't seem to find a way around this issue and untill now so doesn't Arrow NetApp support where we have an open support case. Any help would be appriciated.
First, the information about the broken disk disappeared once I reseated the physical disk, so the problem that is remaining is that of an unassigned disk.
When running storage disk show -shelf 11, disk 2.11.4 is missing :
2.11.3 836.9GB 11 3 SAS aggregate BL_NF0011_DATA1 BL-NF0011 2.11.5 836.9GB 11 5 SAS aggregate BL_NF0011_DATA1 BL-NF0011
Any command with disk id 2.11.4 fails because it can't be found.
I found out by checking the serial number that the disk in Shelf 11, bay 4 is an unassigned disk with the name :
but assigning it to node BL-NF0011 fails because "redundancy errors were detected" or maybe it would work if I use the force option ? The other thing I haven't come across earlier is the disk id. In the past when I replaced a broken disk, the new one alsways came up as eg. 2.11.4 and when I execute "storage disk show BL-NF0011:switch_V2_2:6.126L83" the Stack ID/Shelf/Bay: - / - / - information stays empty so I'm puzzled how I can find the physical location of a disk with such a name.
