Disk Allocation on FAS2554 HA pair

netappmw

I am having a new setup on FAS2554 HA pair, using Data Ontap 8.3.1

 

During setup, disks are automatically assign, each half assigned to one controller.

 

However I would like to know if we can allocate more disks on one controllers, so as to create a larger usable disk capacity?

 

And since the root volume spread across all disks owned by one controller, can I move ownership of a disk between controller if the root volume data already exists? If yes, how can I achieve that?

 

Thnaks!

Hi @netappmw

 

root partition and data partition can have diff owners, please have a look:

  

storage disk show -partition-ownership

 

How root-data partitioning works

 

Assigning ownership for disks partitioned for root-data partitioning
