If 'disk show -n' reports no results, then all of your disks are successfully assigned.
If you run the 'disk assign' command on node A then the disks you specified will be assigned to node A. You can check the disk and raid group configuration on node A by typing in the 'sysconfig -r' or 'aggr status -r' command on node A's CLI session.
If you run the 'disk assign' command on node B then the disks you specified will be assigned to node B. You can check the disk and raid group configuration on node B by typing in the 'sysconfig -r' or 'aggr status -r' command on node B's CLI session.
You can find more information on disk assignment via page 45 of the Storage Administration Guide for your specific version of ONTAP which 'sysconfig -a' was showing to be 7.3.3:
You can view the disk from both controllers but the disk itself can only be owned by one controller.
If you run disk show -n and receive no results then all of the disks are successfully assigned. You can assign them however you like. The goal is to make sure they are assigned so that they can be used.
