1) Can i create one root partition and 1 data partition on newly add disk and put this disk in spare list of drive ?
2) When we replaced failed Disk enable with advance disk partition used in aggregate , should we create ADP partition on this drive first ? or it will create ADP automatically after the replacement with faulty drives?
If you're growing an aggr it will repartition full disks to fill existing raid-groups. otherwise, you'll need to create new raidgroups to grow the aggr with full disks. If there's a failure and the only spare is a full disk. ONTAP will automatically partition a spare to replace the failed drive.
Thanks for sharing information, i understand ADP will be written on spare disk automatically. Now i have another disk shelf currently these drives are in unassigned state, now i am going to create new non ADP aggregate with these drives, My question here is if i leave one spare for this shelf which is off course non ADP drive, is there any way to restrict this spare drive which will be used for non ADP aggregate drive replacement during any failure.
