Hi guys, I have a FAS270 single controller that will be made into a cluster soon but I have some questions on what impact it will have.
currently the single FAS270 controller has 4 shelves which is its maximum. If I were to make it into a cluster I would want to distribute the
aggregates across the two controllers to balance the load so each controller would own about 2 shelves worth of disks and the which in
my case is about an aggregate per shelf. If I just offline the aggregate and unassign those disks on the shelf to the other controller will
the aggregate be intact?
If you guys have any other ideas on how to achieve this I would be very grateful.

You would use software ownership to configure the disk ownership. The aggregate would be distroyed in the process from what I understand of it.
You would have to copy / snapmirror the volumes to a tempary aggregate
Delete the old aggregate
Assign the disks
Create a new aggregate
Copy / snapmirror the volumes
Set up the shares
Set lun disk ID
