Assigning disks to nodes

Contributors netapp-ivanad

You can use System Manager to assign ownership of an unassigned disk to a specific node to increase the capacity of an aggregate or storage pool.

About this task
  • You can assign disks if the following conditions are true:

    • The container type of the selected disks must be “unassigned”.

    • The disks must be connected to nodes in an HA pair.

    • The disks must be visible to the node.

  • For MetroCluster configurations, you cannot use System Manager to assign disks.

    You must use the command-line interface instead.

Steps
  1. Click Storage > Aggregates & Disks > Disks.

  2. In the Disks window, select the Inventory tab.

  3. Select the disks that you want to assign, and then click Assign.

  4. In the Assign Disks dialog box, select the node to which you want to assign the disks.

  5. Click Assign.
