Netapp 2020 setup


So, I'm trying to setup the 2020,  I current have RAID6 using 4 disks each off each controller.  I'm trying to add 1 more disk to a raid/aggregate, but I dont see how in the GUI(there is a spot, but it doesnt see the spare disks) and I dont see any disk command in the cli. Thanks in advance!


Root Aggregate?
Raid Size:
Used Capacity:
233 GB
% Used:

Total Capacity:
239 GB
Number of Disks:
Number of Files:

Max Files:
31.1 k
Double Parity?

aggr0 (online,raid_dp, 98% used of 239 GB)

/aggr0/plex0 (online)

disks are unowned... use "disk assign xx.xx.xx" to assign a disk to a node... or assign 2 to one node then "disk assign all" if you want to assign the 4 unowned evenly between both nodes...then you can add the drive.  From the cli "aggr add aggrname 1"... although if data is on the aggr you could hit some performance constraints while the single disk is written to unless you run reallocate.


Thanks for the reply, I've tried using the disk command in the cli. Both commands disk and aggr when entered int othe cli report unknown command. This is in both admin and advance.
