Hello;

I have the problem to create one Volume as big as possible.

I have a FAS 2554 with 4 Shelves with SATA 4TB and 6TB HDDs, in 2 Aggregates, one with the 4TB HDDs and one with the 6 TB HDDs.

I want to create  one big Volume over 2 Aggregates for max. Capacity, is this possible?

Thanks for your answers, greetings, Thomas

Flex Volume cannot be created over 2 aggregate , but one can create a max capacity thin volume and as the data grows , more disks can be added to the aggregate.
