Manually assigning disks with root-data partitioning

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

About this task

The container disk and the two partitions do not all need to be owned by the same node in the HA pair as long as they are all owned by one of the nodes in the HA pair. However, when you use a partition in an aggregate, it must be owned by the same node that owns the aggregate.

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
    Data partition storage disk assign -disk disk_name -owner owner_name -data 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.
