Broken Disks

COG

Hi,

 

I am trying to configure 2 nodes (with 3 stacks of disks) that we just added to our lab environment. These nodes were decommissioned from the production environment. The disks in 2 stacks are displaying as broken with one stack showing amber light on all but 3 disks.

 

Please can someone direct me as to how to solve this problem(s) as I am new to Netapp Storage?

Hi Gidi,

 

Thanks for reaching out. We have resolved the problem with the following commands:

Set -priv advanced

disk unfail -s <disk name>

disk zerospares

 

The disks are now spares and owned by one of the nodes.

What OS and mode these disks came from and what OS they are on now?

any steps performed before? (removing from aggr, removing ownership)
