ONTAP Discussions

OLD SCHOOL HELP PLEASE! Replacement disk has no valid labels. It will be taken out of service....

BeeKay

Anyone have steps on how to prep a previously used (NetApp) disk with the v7.2.4 ONTAP ?

I am looking for the steps to relabel replacement "used" disks, under ONTAP 7.2.4.  (I know, I know!)

 

Sure enough, I lost two disks in two separate arrays (all within a 4 day time period!)

The Controller shut itself down before I could fly out to replace the disks.

 

I swapped out the disks with "refurbished" ones from ServerSupply, and went into Maintenance Mode.

Performed "disk assign all" and restarted.

 

I ran "aggr status -f" because all of the new disks complain about not having any valid labels!

*> aggr status -f

No root aggregate or root traditional volume found.
You must specify a root aggregate or traditional volume with
"aggr options <name> root" before rebooting the system.

 

I don't know what the commands should be to force a new label, my Pool is Pool0, my owner is file01.

Not sure what else it is looking for.

 

IMPORTANT - I AM IN MAINTENANCE MODE, and unable to work, so a quick response would be very welcome!

 

Thanks everyone!

Hello, 

You can find some informations in theis KB : https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1006225/~/disk-label-version-error-or-bad-label-version-error-

 

The right question is wath's your actual Ontap version ? before 8.0.2 ? or after ...

And, have you some data on your disk ?

My version is 7.2.4.  The replacement drive versions are "unknown."  Is there any other workaround to getting these disks operational?

Hello, 

 

you can try this workaround :

disk assign <diskid>

priv set diag

labelmaint isolate <diskid>

label wipe <diskid>

label wipev1 <diskid>

label makespare <diskid>

labelmaint unisolate

priv set

 

Be carefull about disk number 🙂
