I just added two new trays to my V-3170. I have one tray of 2TB SATA drives and I'm wondering what would be the most efficient way to distrubute the disks. I want to get the most space out of my aggregates so would I be better served to create on large aggr? Or split the tray into a couple different aggregates? I will be using RAID-DP.
We currently don't have any existing aggregates with 2TB drives so expanding an existing is not an option.
So considering this is our first tray of 2TB drives, we'll lose one of the 14 disks as a hot spare. Leaving us with a total of 13 useable disks. So I'd create one aggregate with 7 disks and the other with 6 disks, guess I really have no other options. Thoughts on this?
