how to reassign disks

Hello,

 

I have added a DS4243 with 24 1TB drives to my FAS2040.

 

It looks like the disks on my new shelf have already been assigned before. Anytime I try to do a disk_removeownership or disk_unassign it says this can only be done in maintenance mode?

 

How can I unassign and reassign the disks with out taking the filer down? (I only have one controller)

 

Thanks!

Re: how to reassign disks

Hello,

Try this:

Identify the actual sysid owner:

> disk show

Remove the ownership using disk assign:

> disk assign <disk_id> -o unowned -s <sysid>

Regards,

Nascimento

NetApp - Enjoy it!

Re: how to reassign disks

Not sure if this helps but this is what I get for remove_ownership

netapp01*> disk remove_ownership 0d.01.19

disk remove_ownership: Disk 0d.01.19 is not owned by this node.

Re: how to reassign disks

'disk show -v'

It shows all disks attached to the controllers.

-n shows unowned and -a shows all assigned....

Please, put here the 'disk show -v' output.

Re: how to reassign disks

Yes, it is!

Thanks Aborzenkov... -s unowned and not -o unowned.

Re: how to reassign disks

adding -f worked!!!!

Just curious, why does it require -f? that just seems a little scary
