Can not create any Aggregate because of sufficient disk

arinokitoku

Hey everyone,

 

I have running an Netapp Ontab  7.3.7P1

and i want to create an Aggregate, but when i do this the server tells me he has not enough disk:

"You do not have sufficient spare disks to create a 'RAID-DP' aggregate."

 

but i see that three disk are used for the root Aggregat and the other disk are "empty"

Those are on your partner node.. You need to log into partner and run aggr status -s

 

That current node has no spares which is bad

As in the other reply, you need to have spare disks on your controller to create an aggregate.

 

you need a minimum 3 drives to create a RAID-DP aggregate as you need one data and two partiy drives.

 

the drives showing as partner are owned by the other controller in what will be a HA system, you need to connect to that and see if you have spare drives there.

 

however in a small system like this, i would suggest you may not need more aggregates.

 

what are you trying to achieve?
