I am trying to partition some new spare disks and I have run into this wall.  

 

::*>storage disk create-partition -source-disk <disk path name> -target-disk <disk path name>

 

In my case:

 

::*>storage disk create-partition -source-disk 1.1.11 -target-disk 1.2.0

 

I got "not a recognized command" .........on 9.9.1P2.

 

Any helpful hints would be great.

That is at least an advanced command, but I believe it is a diag command:

set diag

storage disk create-partition -source-disk 1.1.11 -target-disk 1.2.0

 

Remember, the source and target disk must be owned by the same node and the source disk must be partitioned. I also believe the target disk should be the same size as the source.

Where did you find the command? We need to update our document if it doesn't say it is diag.

It is already there....I did not have access to a SIM yesterday. I do now (set diag; man storage disk create-partition)
