I have a FAS2220 HA with dataontap 8.1.2
the first controleur owns 12 disks
the second controler owns 24 disks from a 4243 shelf
the root aggregate is badly configured we miss a spare disk we should have 2
raidgroup 1 has 11 disk
raidgroup 2 has 12 disks
1 spare disk
seems that it is not possible to remove a disk from one raidgroup
so I wanted to reinitialize the controler (there is no data on this controler)
if I choose option menu 4 nothing happend ... after a reinitialisation time the controler reboots with the same configuration ??? what is this option for?
there is no option menu 4a
can some one help me to find a solution to remove a disk from the second raid group?
I need not to loose the SP port cause the controler is not accessible
thanks for your help
There is no 4a because you can create only flexvol root. Option 4 does not change which disks are owned, but it will create root aggregate consisting of 3 disks, all other disks will be spare. Are you sure you are looking at the correct controller?
If I understand the question correctly.
You can't remove disks from an aggregate
You must destroy it and rebuild it if you want to have 2 spare disks.
thanks it works
