I am trying to run a .ps1 script given to me by higher level. Factory Reset the storage system as directed using a macro file. When deploying the environment, fails to assign the first aggregate disk to node 1. Is there a command or setting in Data Ontap 8.3 that will allow/disable changing of node ownership of aggregate disks?

You can reassign ownership, but the drive needs to be a spare. 

Here's a run down of the commands to move ownership of a disk and disk partitions. 

 

for removing disks with root partitions be sure to include the -data true tag and be in advanced mode.  

set d
<yes>
storage disk option modify -node * -autoassign off
disk removeowner -disk x.x.x -data true    
disk assign -disk x.x.x -data true -owner NODEx 
disk show -fields data-owner, root-owner 
storage disk option modify -node * -autoassign on         
set admin

Keeping in mind that Data ONTAP 8.3 is out-of-support, so an ONTAP upgrade is recommended, you can follow the information at page 50 for "Configuring automatic ownership assignment of disks" at Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3 Physical Storage Management Guide (netapp.com) with the "storage disk option modify -autoassign-policy" command.
