I have a FAS2240-4 7-mode HA where we have to add a new disk shelf DS4243 for capacity expansion could you please verify if the steps below are corect in order to add all the new disk to the existing aggregate:
1. after the H/W installation we have to check that new disks are available with command disk show -n
2. add the disks to existing aggregate (aggr1) wtih the command: aggr add aggr1 -d v5.22 v.523 v.524 ..........etc
3. expand the volumes
Thanks and Regards

Before adding disks to aggregate you need to assign them to correct controller (disk assign). Depending on your configuration it may happen automatically and it may be wrong (see description of disk.auto_assign option).
if disk disk.auto_assign option is on then it means that no other steps nedded?
No; all other steps are still required.
to be more specific I have to add a new self with 24x 2TB disks, is it possible to add all the new disks on the existing aggregate?
Yes, as long as total aggregate size will not exceed platform limits (check HWU).
