Manually assigning disks with root-data-data partitioning

For root-data-data partitioning there are four owned entities (the container disk and the three partitions) collectively owned by the HA pair.

About this task

Root-data-data partitioning creates one small partition as the root partition and two larger, equally sized partitions for data.

Parameters must be used in the disk assign command to assign the proper partition of a root-data-data partitioned disk. You cannot use these parameters with disks that are part of a storage pool. The default value is false.
  • The [-data1 [true]] parameter assigns the data1 partition of a root-data1-data2 partitioned disk.
  • The [-data2 [true]] parameter assigns the data2 partition of a root-data1-data2 partitioned disk.

Steps

  1. Display the current ownership for the partitioned disk: storage disk show -disk disk_name -partition-ownership
  2. Set the CLI privilege level to advanced: set -privilege advanced
  3. Enter the appropriate command, depending on which ownership entity you want to assign ownership for:
    If you want to assign ownership for the... Use this command...
    Container disk storage disk assign -disk disk_name -owner owner_name
    Data1 partition storage disk assign -disk disk_name -owner owner_name -data1 true
    Data2 partition storage disk assign -disk disk_name -owner owner_name -data2 true
    Root partition storage disk assign -disk disk_name -owner owner_name -root true

    If any of the ownership entities are already owned, then you must include the -force option.
