How to destroy the filesystem of a disk

ANYLINQSUPPORT

Hi,

 

I am cleaning up an old netapp FAS3250.

 

When I connect one of the shelfs to the controller, one of the disks seems to be a filesystem disk. See below.

The disk was part of an aggregate, but now it does not participate in an aggreate.

 

Can you  body tell me how to convert the filesystem disk to a spare disk?

 

 

nacluster::*> storage disk show -container-type aggregate
Usable Disk Container Container
Disk Size Shelf Bay Type Type Name Owner
---------------- ---------- ----- --- ------- ----------- --------- --------
4.7000025335.0.1 2.68TB 0 0 MSATA aggregate aggr0(2) nacluster-n2
4.7000025335.1.1 2.68TB 0 1 MSATA aggregate aggr0(2) nacluster-n2
4.7000025335.2.1 2.68TB 0 2 MSATA aggregate aggr0(2) nacluster-n2
4.7000025335.9.1 2.68TB 0 9 MSATA aggregate aggr0(1) nacluster-n2
4.7000025335.9.2 2.68TB 0 9 MSATA aggregate aggr0(1) nacluster-n2
4.7000025335.11.2 2.68TB 0 11 MSATA aggregate aggr0(1) nacluster-n2

Thanks.

Hi there,

 

Can you take the system down? You've connected a shelf with a duplicate shelf ID, and the easiest way to fix that is power down, change and power up..

 

Regarding this issue though.. take the false aggr offline with "storage aggr offline aggr0(2)", then verify the desired data is still online from other aggregates, then run "storage aggr destroy aggr0(2)", and "storage disk zerospares"

 

Hope this helps!
