Unable to create Flash Pool in 8.3.1 Simulator


I was able to to setup my 8.3.1 two node simulator as per the MEGA fix thread, but I ran into a problem when I tried to create a flash pool with the SSD's


The message was as follows :


"Data ONTAP API Failed: Disk "NET-1.7" cannot be shared. Reason: Invalid partitioning specification. (Error: 13001)"



Anyone have any ideas ?



Thats progress.  It used to try to share them and crater the sim.


Instead add the whole ssd disk to the aggregate as cache.  you still get a flash pool, just without the ssd slicing/storage pool.
