- Controller A took many SAS disks, partition all disks and created aggr0.
- Controller B took 3 SATA disks (from shelf 1) and didn't partition this disks.
Question is: ADP is supported on external shelves? I read the limit for 2 external shelves plus internal "shelf". So this may be supported, except if SATA disks are not suported by ADP (I don't know if this is true)
The documentation at low level is very poor or inexistent ( I think it's normal, CDOT 8.3 is very new) and I cannot find specifically the answers to this concrete questions.
I'm going to create one SVM for NFS (Virtual Machines) and another SVM for CIFS. So, with this scenario, the idea I came with I don't know if applies: 1 node with all SAS, and 1 node with all SATA. As I can partition SAS disks, may be a good idea to give both controllers SAS and SATA disks, SAS for root and data, and SATA only for data.
But if SATA disks can be partitioned, I'll continue with the first idea (SAS for one controller, SATA for another, and SSD shared with a Storage pool)
Like the previous answer ... The ADP is closed in the contrloler,but the ADp is just for theRoot partition
So you can have the root part for the tow controlersin the controler disk SLICE ROOT, and the first controler dan have the big SLICE ooff all disk inthe controler and the second controler have the shelves for dataexen if it's root part is Slice on the controler disk
As far as I have heard, Root-data partitioning only supports entry-level FAS or AFF configuration. External shelves are not supported, and disk assignment is not configurable. Disk assignment in ADP will be decided based on number of internal disks. Half of internal disks are assigned to controller A, and another half is assigned to controller B. Internal SATA disks are also supported in ADP.
