I'm running 8.3.1P1, and need to perform 12 disk replaces on SATA to evacuate a shelf.
I have done the 'disk replace' command several times before with success, but that was one at a time. Does Ontap Allow me to perform multiple disk replaces at the sametime, and it just queue the replacements? These would be 12 from the same aggregate, and some would be in the same raidgroup.
I couldn't find any document specifying what it does when you run multiple commands for multiple disk replaces. Anyone have any experience with this. I really don't want to write a script to monitor the event log for the status.
I plan to use VOL MOVE to evacuate all volumes from an aggregate that resides on a shelf in need of replacement. However, as luck would have it, one of the disks belongs to a root aggregate. Are there any special concerns with running the "disk replace" command against a disk that is part of a root aggr?
