Re: Replaced disk from FAS2020 into FAS2040+DS4243, now what?

ok thanks for your help.  I moved the drives back to the 2020 and will try to clean them there and move back.

And just to comment on the raid4...

I am building this for strictly a backup repository before I go to tape or replicate using our backup solution's replication option.  The RAID 4 was intentionally setup on each controller so that I do not have as many drives installed and running.  This gives me spare parts and saves power as the rest of the drives are actually pulled out about one inch on the array.  3 drives per controller is all that is setup for the aggr/root vol.  That is why the 4243 shelf is needed.  I have x12 1TB drives that I am planning on running in a raid group for the backup data.

I did try this option before but it failed.  Then I then noticed that one controller didn't see all the drives on the ds4243.  When I ran disk remove_ownership -f 0d.01.0 it worked on the other controller it worked.

Note for future readers: this failed if you didn't include the "-f" switch.

Ah, the -f switch did it.. Didn't think to use force.. Nice work
