We just put 2 new shelves on 2 different loop; one of them is the 6th shelf on the loop (3d) and the second is the first on the loop (3a; 4a)

Shelves are recognized and shelfcheck reports no errors,

Disk assing is not successful

CGYNNA01> disk assign all -o CGYNNA01
disk assign: Could not find any unowned disks to assign.

Disks from new shelves do not apper in FilerView under STORAGE-DISKS-MANAGE, (under any type you choose to view),

Head was not restarted, have to wait till weekend to try that,

Any suggestion on how to get disks recognized?

Thank you for all the Help



Hi Alex

Disk show -v is showing you that the system IDs on disks are different.

[CGYNNA01 =18055383 it seems]. 151701276 needs to be reassigned to CGYNNA0's sysid

You will have to go into maintenance mode and reassign the disks to the system ID of your filer.

CGYNNA01 *> disk assign [priv set advanced provides more options]


reassign {-o <old_name> | -s <old_sysid>} [-n <new_name>] [-d <new_sysid>] - reassign disks from old filer
remove_ownership [<disk_name> | all | -s <sysid>] [-f] - revert/remove disk ownership


Hi Ritu,

Thank you very much,

Great help,

We will fix this on the weekend,

How do I reward point on this forum?
