Creating a query to identify NetApp root aggregates in your environment

Queries provide search at a granular level, based on user-selected criteria. Using a query allows you to search for Internal volumes in your environment that contain the NetApp root aggregate.

Steps

  1. In the OnCommand Insight web UI, create a query to identify NetApp root aggregates in your environment: Queries > New Query > Select Resource Type
  2. Click Storage Pool
  3. Enter the name for the root aggregate
    This example uses "aggr0" for the name. When creating an aggregate, only the following requirements for the name must be followed:
    • It must begin with either a letter or an underscore (_).
    • It can contain only letters, digits, and underscores.
    • It can be 250 characters or less.

    In most cases the aggregate is name aggr0, aggr_0, or something similar. It might require an iterative process to identify all of the NetApp root aggregates in your environment.

  4. Click Save and enter a name for the new query.
    As mentioned before, this might be an iterative process and require multiple queries to identify all of the NetApp root aggregates.
