FAS and V-Series Storage Systems Discussions
I have 3140 V series box with 7.3.1 loaded.
I am facing one issue that by default this box took 2 spares and there is not any option that I can keep only one disk as spare.
I am having total 28 x 300 FC disks.
these are devided into 2 controllers as 14 for each controller.
by default when I choose option 4a it took 3 disks (1 x data and 2 x parity)
now when I'm trying to add remaining disk to aggregate it only allows me to add 9 disks max.
Is there any options / command that I can change this setting and keep only one disk as spare??
For you information, I have already checked RAID_MIN_SPARE_COUNT setting, but in vain.
See The Solution
Change "raid.min_spare_count " to 1.
Thanks for the timely reply
but as I've mentioned in thread that this options is already checked and value is already set to 1
then also I am facing this issue.
Any other options will be appretiated
Hmm....are you using FilerView? If so, adding the disk from the commandline (FilerView forces you to keep 2 spares on NetApp hardware at least).

Yeah, use the CLI and you'll be fine.
