ONTAP Rest API Discussions

Getting a list of spare-disks (even if they are not in the spare-container)


After doing a bit more research it turns out that on a system with Advanced Disk Partition we can not use the container-type as indication for a spare-disk (some spare-disks are in the shared container). So what I would like to do ist sending this command 

aggr show-spare-disks

to the system using the new REST-API.


Does anyone have an idea how I can do that?



I don't have a 9.6 box with ADP handy at the moment unfortunately, but could you use the "state" field from the /storage/disks REST API to collect the data? Test it out and let me know - thanks! 


curl -X GET "https://<cluster hostname>/api/storage/disks?state=spare&fields=&return_records=true&return_timeout=15" -H "accept: application/json"

 Unfortunately this field is present as well, if the disk is in the shared-container (spare disks are in red😞

The only other way beside of using the CLI command aggr show-spare-disks may be disk partition show:

XGB17::*> disk partition show

But I have no clue how to do that over the API either.
