Hi everyone,

 We've just initialized a dual controller FAS2620 running OS 9.4P3. After initializing, the storage shows 2 aggr.

Here is the #disk show result. I find that some disks are member of 2 aggregates. One of these aggregates is an orphan aggregate.

How can I remove 8 disks from orphan aggregate ( FSI_FAS2620_01_NL_SAS_1).

I find that some disks are member of 2 aggregates?
That's expected as part of the ONTAP Advanced Drive Partitioning (ADP) feature for entry-level FAS2xxx, FAS9000, FAS8200, FAS80xx. Root-data partitioning reduces the parity tax by apportioning the root aggregate across disk partitions, reserving one small partition on each disk as the root partition and one large partition for data.

This article explains this:
https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/ontap/concepts/root-data-partitioning-concept.html

 


One of these aggregates is an orphan aggregate?
What do you mean by orphan here ?


How can I remove 8 disks from orphan aggregate ( FSI_FAS2620_01_NL_SAS_1)?
I doubt you can do that, as these partitioned disks. You may be able to destroy (unwanted aggregate) but I am guessing that will simply make the partitioned areas available for adding/creating a new aggregate.

Thank you for your reply.

During the reboot process, I press Ctrl-C to display the boot menu when prompted to do so.

The storage system displays the following options for the boot menu:

(1) Normal Boot.
(2) Boot without /etc/rc.
(3) Change password.
(4) Clean configuration and initialize all disks.
(5) Maintenance mode boot.
(6) Update flash from backup config.
(7) Install new software first.
(8) Reboot node.
Selection (1-8)?

 I choose option 4 to clear the configuration and initialize all disks. Create a new cluster and join the other node to the cluster.

FSI_FAS2620_01_NL_SAS_1 is the old data aggregate and no longer in use.  It should be cleared after the reinitialization. I just want to remove that aggregate to release disks from it.

Thank you,

Hello @fsi ,

 

As @Ontapforrum mentioned, option 9, specifically 9b, is used to initialize configurations using Advanced Disk Partitioning and ption 4 is for non-partitioned systems.

 

If you want to utilize Advanced Disk Partitioning then you will have to re-initialize the system using option 9b. If you are content with the existing configuration and only want to remove the stale orphan aggregate then you can use the following command from the Cluster shell "storage aggregate delete -aggregate AGGRNAME".

 

Option 4 wasn't designed to encompass partitioned disks, which contains different complexity for SCSI Reservations as there are multiple reservations for each partition and the physical disk itself. Traditionally only one SCSI Reservation would be placed on any given disk at a time. Mixed SCSI Reservations can prevent a system from initializing a disk/and or partition. The stale data then results in orphan aggregates.

 

Here is a link to ONTAP 9.4 Command Reference.

I have removed the orphan aggregate successful. Here is what I did

1. Halt node2

2. Boot node 1 in maintenance mode > disk remove_ownership all > reboot > choose option 4 – wipeconfig.
Once the wipe is finished, go with option 9

Do the same to node 2.

Thank both of you for yours recommendation.
