There are not enough spare disks error

Hi Guys,

I've taken over the management  NetApp filer, but I don't have a huge amount of experence with NetApp .

I've meet the following error:  "There are not enough spare disks. /aggr2/plex0/rg4: Please add spare disks supporting block checksums with minimum size: Used 2".

This is on a FAS3050.

Could you give me any suggestions?

Aggr2 disk is 15000 rpm, We have 26 10000 rpm spare disks .



Re: There are not enough spare disks error


I'm new with netapp as well, but what I've understand, there should be two spare (at least one)  disks and those spare disks should be simular as your data disks.
