Installing FAS8200 with ADP

Greetings - I'm trying to reinstall Ontap 9.6P2 w/ADP on a FAS8200 with DS212C shelf w/12x8TB disk and a DS224C shelf w/24x2TB SAS disks.

 

The VAR did not configure ADP originally and used up some of the 7TB for the root partitions. When I go through the re-init, I'm choosing Option 9 --> Option 9A (both nodes), then reboot and choose option 9B.

 

When the system comes back up with ADP, it is setting drives on both shelves as 'shared', with  each shelf/node hosting an aggr0xxx  - Using 10 drives on each shelf e.g.:

 

DS212C Shelf:

1.11.0 7.14TB 11 0 FSAS shared a01n02_SATA, aggr0_lndscl02_02

 

DS224C Shelf:

2.12.0 1.63TB 12 0 SAS shared a02n01_SAS, aggr0_lndscl02_01

 

Is this how ADP is supposed to look on a FAS8200? Am I able to set it up so that on the DS212C/8TB disk shelf has ADP installed?

 

Thx for any info!

 

Pete

Hi. You can disconnect one of the shelves or take disks out while you do- it so it dosen't apply to them....  the initialization will try to use as many drives as supported for the ADP. (see HWU for the different config)

Hi Gidi -

 

Thanks for response!

 

The system is remote with no onsite support, so I will most likley just live with the small space that gets used up on the 2Tb drives as the usable space will shrink a bit on each drive for aggregate use.

 

Thx again,

 

Pete

Hi

 

You can maybe disable the disks bays from remote:
