How to utilise the Default root aggregate disks

Kamal

Hi we have FAS8300, Shipped with 2 shelves with 12*8TB Drives. 

 

Netapp has created default aggregate (root) with 3 drives. So i have left with 9 drives in each shelf.

 

Since we need more capacity, can i add remaining drives to default root aggregage, is there any impact here. 

 

Second option whether i can use Advance drive partition. any steps available to perform this and what it will do. 

 

please provide some suggestions.

 

Regards

Kamal

I would 100% use ADP for this system.

Thanks.

 

when i run ADP from boot menu.

Does the aggregate creates by its own or should i need to create.

After you run opt9/9a/9b and run the cluster setup wizard you'll have the root partitions created.    You can then easily create the data aggrs from the wizard in the GUI.   

 

just to note:  running either opt 4 or opt 9 (and it's sub options) from the boot menu will wipe the config and data from the HA pair.
