CDOT 8.3 spare disk assign in partitioned aggregates

klemen_bregar

Hi!

 

I have few questions regarding cDOT 8.3 partitioned systems.

One of the disk has failed and then i have replaced it.

My question is what is the correct way to assign this "unassigned" disk to "spare" disk in this partitioned system?

 

I have assigned this disk with "-owner" to controller fas222.

 

This is current output (stor disk show):

1.0.9                1.62TB     0   9 BSAS    spare       Pool0     fas222

 

Is this OK in case if another disk fails, will system do a reconstruction of all partitions on this disk or there is another way to assign this disk as a spare partitions?

 

Thank you!

 

With regards

Klemen

Per this article, you should make sure to have an entire physical disk assigned to a node as a spare, but otherwise, it will partition it automatically the next time it needs it.
