PANIC: raid: there are no data or parity disks in SK process rc on release 8.2P6


Hi All,


i hope really somebody can help me.

I'm really new in Netapp and hope that someone will/can help me.

I have an FAS2240-2

He boot but then i have PANIC: raid: there are no data or parity disks in SK process rc on release 8.2P6 

And then i receive Loader A prompt.

I googled ofcourse and they told me to use option 4a but on my version there is no 4a only 4

After hours he cleaned up the disks but i think there is something with the disk label and i must crate mroot partion or something.

But what i do i comes always back with the same error.

Can someone help me please with this

i must create an root partition i think but dont know how to do and select disks to use.


Here is an print screen of the error


thank you

Could you boot again and @ the CTRL+C menu request quick press CTRL + C

And after choose Mainteance boot and after try a

You must specify a root aggregate or traditional volume with

I would do something like this. 


1. Boot in to Maint mode (opt 5) and delete everything, existing volumes, aggrs, disk ownership. 


2. If you can, I would first upgrade it up to at least 8.3 (if not 9.1Px) before you do the opt 4,  you will get to use ADP.  You can do this via Boot Menu Opt 7, Note: you will need a basic network setup on e0M to get the image. 


4. Run option 4. 



note: is this the kb you're talking about? 


I don't believe this applies to your config. 






thanks for your reaction


 i already delete everything and use option 4.

But then i dont find any partions anymore (or disks), or labels


and the spoke about option 4a, i dont have that option and its an version higer then version 7





Wath is your actual Ontap version ?

In some version the boot menu 4a option, atr not avaible, dont be afraid about this 

So, depend of your actual version, wath do you want to do ?

- Install from scratch ?

- Lost evrething ?

- Do you Want ADP ?

- How many disk and controler have you ?




The ontap version is 8.2P6

I have two controllers in it and 22 * 900 GB disks and 2* 200 gb ssd disks

i will install from scratch and its not an problem to lost everything

And i will to use adp





per the output in the OP he's on: NetApp Data ONTAP 8.2P6 Cluster-Mode  


If you want ADP, you will NEED to reinitilize on 8.3 or higher.   


Guy, give this link a read over. 





The best way for you is to install, the two controler with an dummy conf 

Jsut to made an upgrade in 8.3 

After you can back to the loager and broke all to install ADP 

It's Ok for you ?
