Spare disks not displayed

Hi guys,

I'm trying to add more disks to my aggregate, but I'm not getting it because it seems that the storage is not recognizing the disks.

Here is my outputs:

robin> sysconfig -r

Aggregate aggr0 (online, raid_dp) (block checksums)

  Plex /aggr0/plex0 (online, normal, active)

    RAID group /aggr0/plex0/rg0 (normal)

Spare disks (empty)

robin> disk show -n

disk show: No disks match option -n.

Even any spares was not displayed, I have three more disks in positions  0c.00.2,  0c.00.6 and  0c.00.10.

My question is. What problem could let the disks not to be displayed? Maybe, firmware version?

Thanks in advance for any help.


Re: Spare disks not displayed


>sysconfig -a
>disk show -v

What kind outputs you get from those commands?


Re: Spare disks not displayed

The disks were displayed with 'disk show -v'

robin> disk show -v

0c.00.7      robin     (142219724)    Pool0  9QMBDCNE              robin     (142219724)

How can I unassign these disk from controller 'batman' ? Thanks!

Re: Spare disks not displayed

I've tried 'disk remove_ownership' in advanced mode, but the system reply with these messages:

robin> priv set advanced

Warning: These advanced commands are potentially dangerous; use

         them only when directed to do so by NetApp


robin*> disk remove_ownership 0c.00.2 

disk remove_ownership: Disk 0c.00.2 is not owned by this node.

I'm running with just one controller. 'batman' is not present in the base enclosure of FAS2040. How can I remove ownership in this scenario? Thanks!

Re: Spare disks not displayed


yeah, you can't remove ownership, because it's owned by other node.
But in priv set advanced, you can assign that disk if you use -f flag.
>disk assign -f <disk>
>disk assign <disk> -f
Can't remeber which


Re: Spare disks not displayed

I got it by running:

robin> disk assign 0c.00.2 -s unowned -f

robin> disk assign 0c.00.6 -s unowned -f

robin> disk assign 0c.00.10 -s unowned -f

Thanks man!
