Re: Query about flashpool ?


Hi Shylendradi,


How many disks you are going to add in to your aggregate ???? And Is your OnTap 7-Mode or Cluster Mode ????


Remeber that there is minimum requirement of Disk to create a FLASH POOL 


FAS3100 and FAS3200 min requirement is 3+2 ( 3 data + 2 Parity )


FAS6000 and FAS6200 is 9+2 ( 9 Data + 2 Parity )




Step 1:- You Need to enable Hybrid on your aggregate in order to have flash pool


7- Mode


aggr options aggr_name hybrid_enabled on


Cluster Mode 


storage aggregate modify -aggregate aggr_name -hybrid_enabled true



Step 2:- Now you can add disks using their DISK ID's , If you have more than one Raid Group you have to choose which RG 




aggr add aggr_name -T SSD 6@100


cluster Mode


storage aggregate add-disks -aggregate aggr-name -disktype SSD -diskcount 3



You can verify If it is enabled as below




aggr status -v aggr_name


Cluster Mode


storage aggregate show -aggregate aggr_name



Once done now you need to create READ or WRITE policies in the Aggregate , Please follow the guide to create policies 




Hope it helps 🙂
