Hello Experts;

Hope you are all well and in good health? I have a few questions i kindly request for your expertises. 

Qns 1:

When assigning ownership to Disk of DS212C of 4TB only 8disks are assigned 4 disk become shared and I can't use them for creation of aggregates

Qns 2:

Is there a way of forcing these 4 disks to be owned by single controller so that I can use them.

 

Kindly assist me with solutions to these challenges. Thanks alot for your help

Hello,

 

I do not see why you wouldn't be able to use those disks in the way you want. It seems they are partitioned. These are new/unused shelves, right?

 

Can you share the output for the below commands?

 

storage disk show -ownership

storage disk show -partition-ownership

 

If they are partitioned, you should be able to remove the partitions with the following command:

 

system node run -node xxx -command disk unpartition xx.xx.xx

 

or

 

set d

storage disk unpartition ....

 

Kind regards,

Pedro
