hello,

I’m planning to build fas2750(Ontap v9.xx).

It has raid-db configuration environment([data disk x9, parity x2, spare x1] x2 node ) .

 

Question 1:

 If two disks fail on one node (= 1 raid group), will two spare disks be used?

 

Question 2:

 The Ontap 8 manual states that if there are no spare disks and two disks fail, the node will be shut down within 24 hours  (default) automatically.

 Does Ontap9 behave in the same way?

 

Thanks

Question 1:

No. Disks are owned by the individual nodes. If you have assigned both spare disks to one Node then of course it will use it.

 

Question 2:
The Ontap 8 manual states that if there are no spare disks and two disks fail, the node will be shut down within 24 hours  (default) automatically. Does Ontap9 behave in the same way?
Yes, Ontap 9 does behave the same way as mentioned here, under the section 'raid.timeout'. It still works in HA-pair.
