Replacement of DISK

Yes, nice to meet you all.
I have hardly touched NETAPP Storage and suddenly the person in charge quit and I have to deal with it.
Therefore, I would like your help as my knowledge is limited.

The DISK broke and was replaced with a HDD that was used elsewhere in a hurry.
At that time, it displayed "badlabel" and I was in a hurry, but I found out that it was displayed like that because the disk was used in another chassis.
Then, with the following command, the badlabel was corrected and the disk was recognized.

 

storage disk unfail -s 1.1.15


Up to this point, there was no problem, but the disk was recognized as a spare, and I think it is different from the original state.
Can you please tell me how to restore this to its original state?
What is the original state?
1.1.13 3.63TB 1 13 FSAS aggregate aggr2 main-01
1.1.14 3.63TB 1 14 FSAS aggregate aggr2 main-01
1.1.15 3.63TB 1 15 FSAS aggregate aggr2 main-01
1.1.16 3.63TB 1 16 FSAS aggregate aggr2 main-01
It is believed to be.
The current status is
1.1.13 3.63TB 1 13 FSAS aggregate aggr2 main-01
1.1.14 3.63TB 1 14 FSAS aggregate aggr2 main-01
1.1.15 3.63TB 1 15 FSAS spare Pool0 main-01
1.1.16 3.63TB 1 16 FSAS aggregate aggr2 main-01

And for information on spares,

The information of the spares is as follows.
What is wrong?

I often maintain RAID on servers, so I did it in the same way.

And I am not good at English, so I am using translation software.

spare disks do not take the same place of the previous failed drive. The spare disk that jumps in will be in the aggregate, but the new disk will become the spare.

Thanks for the replies.
I understand that the spare disk will be in a different location.
Three disks are spares, including the DISK that was replaced and mounted.
Is this normal?

My understanding is that if there are two spares set up, there should be two spares.

The disk that failed this time is a Data DISK, so I believe that the area of the following Spare DISK was used as a spare.
Original Owner: main-02

---------------- ------ ----------- ------ -------------- -------- --------

I was wondering if it has to be Root-Data Partitioned Spares.

Is this a problem with the current situation?
I need your help. Thanks.

Is everyone OK with the way things are going?
Is there anyone who can tell?
Please tell me.
Thank you in advance.

This issue would be related to multiple situations which needs some specific analisys (the specific disk model, where the disk was used before, the previous disk configuration, the current changes made to that disk, etc.)

 

Disk ownership, sanitize, partitioning, etc. can create different behaviours (example Disks are not owned or report a Bad label after running the disk sanitize release command - NetApp Knowledge Base)

 

Since this requires further steps and wrong activities would created problematic situations in the current stable configuration, it is better to open a Support Case with the NetApp Technical Support Center.
