Advance Drive Paritioning on a new FAS 8040 running9.2.1

Good afternoon,

I am looking for a document that details how to implement ADP v2 on a FAS 8040 running 9.2P1.  There is no data on this system so it can be wipted.  Just looking for how to configure it.

 

Thanks

 

Kathy

Only AFF systems support ADP v2 (root-data-data) partitioning.

 

Since you're on ONTAP 9.2+, to get the "right" ADP setup for your system, just run Option 9b from BOTH HA partners.

Thank you but what is option 9B?

Re: Advance Drive Paritioning on a new FAS 8040 running9.2.1

Sorry for the cryptic response!

 

Option 9 (and 9b) is in the boot menu of ONTAP. You would press "Ctrl-C" from the console when starting up ONTAP to access it:

Additional root-data partitioning management options

Please look at the link you sent me.  There is no option 9

Re: Advance Drive Paritioning on a new FAS 8040 running9.2.1

The 1st link was meant to give guidance on how to reach the boot menu. The screenshot in that link is not based on ONTAP 9.2 (when option 9 was introduced).

 

The 2nd link is the release note item discussing ADP boot menu (Option 9).

 

I should have just provided you this KB article link, in retrospect:

Re: Advance Drive Paritioning on a new FAS 8040 running9.2.1

PERFECTO!  I rebooted back into Maintenance Mode and have Option 9.  Will go thru those steps in the article.

 

Thank you!

There is a complication when using half shelves of SSDs as option 9B fails.
