Sorry for opening up such an old post but as it was along the same lines, I thought I might as well.
So I have installed a 2 node cluster and am following some course material about setting up aggregates in a clustered environment. In setting up my cluster, I assigned all disks to one node (when I tried to assign a set number to 1 node, I just got an error saying I could not specify a node name and had to use the auto assign command). This means that when I follow the course material and set up a new aggregate, I can only ever create an aggregate from my second node. However, in the picture from the course material, it shows both cluster nodes with disks available. Is this correct or should it be that only 1 node owns the disks? Or should I be able to split the disk assignment and add some to node 1 and some to node 2?
Ok so this was obviously a config issue. I was using 8.3 clustered mode so thought I would revert back to 8.2, set up the first node, assign all disks, then create second node, join it to the cluster and then use the assign disks to that node. Weather I missed a step off in 8.3 or its set up differently or theres a bug, for whatever the reason, it worked with 8.2 sim but not 8.3 sim. So when I create an aggregate, I can now see both nodes and their disks.
