Partitioned with ADP (production data on two small aggregates).
Customer has found 12 x 7.6T SSDs without a shelf. They would like to add these to the existing half-populated shelf with the 960s, partition the new disks, create a new aggregate on each node with the larger disks, then move the data volumes to the new SSDs.
This will require a manual partitioning of the 7.6T drives, as there isn't a current template to use for this size on the system (only 960G disks).
Does anyone know if there is still a secret way to manually partition drives without having a source partition. I know that prior to ONTAP 9.6 you could do this. Even the KB article is showing this.
System is on 9.11.1, so I am not sure this is available any longer.
Yup...that was my fault for not reading the entire KB and missing the step where node shell is used to do the creation steps. I was too focused on the 9.6+ steps where it didn't have that. If it works on 9.10.1 then it should be good. Thank you for replying so quickly.
