AFF replacing a failed shared disk

gavan

Hi,

a shared disk has failed and I received a new one from NetApp.

Which is the correct assign procedure after replacing the disk?

 

When I try to assign the disk with "storage disk assign -disk disk_name -owner node_name -data1 true"

I receive the error "Failed to assign disks. Reason: Partition not found on disk disk_name"

 

Thanks in advanced

Hi @gavan,

 

yes it is normal. If one of the Shared Disk will fail, the System will automatically partition the Spare Disk.

There is nothing do to for you..

Could you check the output of this command ?

storage aggregate show-spare-disks -node <node_name>

Hi,

at first
NetApp_CL::*> storage aggregate show-spare-disks -node NetApp_CL-02
There are no entries matching your query.
after assign the disk to NetApp_CL-02

NetApp_CL::*> storage aggregate show-spare-disks -node NetApp_CL-02

Original Owner: NetApp_CL-02

Could you try the first command again and let us know the output, along with storage aggr show, just to get an idea how aggr show up.

The System will automatically partition the Disk, if a Disk get failed in one of your Aggregates, so that is fine...

Hi Fabian,

the system had originally 24 shared disks and the auto-assign setting was on.

After replacing the disk, auto-assign didn't work, and when I assign the new disk manually it turns "spare"

and I cannot modify the container type to "shared".

Is it normal?
