Completing the hot-add

If you disabled automatic drive assignment as part of the preparation for the NS224 drive shelf hot-add, you need to manually assign drive ownership and then reenable automatic drive assignment if needed.

Before you begin

You must have already cabled your shelf as instructed for your HA pair.

Cabling a drive shelf for a hot-add

Procedure

  1. Display all unowned drives: storage disk show -container-type unassigned
    You can enter the command on either controller module.
  2. Assign each drive: storage disk assign -disk disk_name -owner owner_name
    You can enter the command on either controller module.

    You can use the wild card character to assign more than one drive at once.

  3. Reenable automatic drive assignment if needed: storage disk option modify -node node_name -autoassign on
    You must reenable automatic drive assignment on both controller modules.
