We have new FAS 2620A stoage . we need to disable ADP .

 

NetApp Data ONTAP 9.1P7

 

 

what is process process of disable ADP

GidonMarcus

i don't think there's a public procedure for it. likely as there's no good technical reason to do it. if you really need to, it seems that you need to open a case with your partner or NetApp and ask for the following article:

 

To disable ADP, follow archive 1015257: Services Partners: How to disable disk auto-partitioning.

Boot menu 9 option unpartition will do it [see FAQ] - and then boot maint and manually assign drives, then option 4 boot and wipeinfo. ADP will only kick in during wipeinfo on unassigned drives, unless the procedure you linked has been set - that will do it permanently (or until set-defaults). 

 

But like Gideon said - I'm curious why you would want to do it. ADP is provided to allow customers to make best use of data efficiency - and turning it off effectively "wastes" 6 disks across an HA pair. You can include data partitions from ADP drives in aggregates of similar sized non-ADP drives.
