I am setting up new FAS2720 (2set) with ONTAP 9.4P4.One is total of 12 x 10TB SATA drives, and the other is total of 12 x 8TB SATA drives.The internal drives were root-data partitioned already from factory and Root Aggr is raid-dp.I tried to create a new data aggregate with raid-tec, but cannot create data aggregate with the follow message.Error: command failed: RAID-TEC aggregate is not fully supported.The Command is "storage aggr create -aggregate <aggregate_name> -nodes <node#1_name> -disklist 1.0.0,1.0.1,1.0.2,1.0.3,1.0.4,1.0.5,1.0.6,1.0.7,1.0.8,1.0.9 -raidtype raid_tec -simulate true"Please tell me how to deal with this message.

With the help of Support, I managed to fix issue..
Drop the nodes to the boot prompt and set the variable….
setenv "bootarg.raid.allow-raid-tec?" true

one addition from my side:
to make the settings in the boot environment persistent just do a "saveenv" at the end
The original "bootarg.raid.allow-raid-tec" value was "*** Undefined ***".
So I changed the value to "true" with 2nodes.
But the result was the same. (I counld not create data aggregate with Taid-TEC.)
You need to make sure there is a question mark at the end. The value you need to set to true is "bootarg.raid.allow-raid-tec?"
I could create the data aggregate with RAID-TEC.
Glad you got it resolved. By the way, if you want to avoid the hassle of identifying specific disks, ONTAP can recommend a layout and create aggregates for you.
::> storage aggregate auto-provision -verbose true
But I could not create the data aggregate with the recommend configration too.
The aggregate type of the recommend configuration was Raid-TEC.
