Recently I assigned a new drive that had failed in the Netapp System using
disk show -n ( for all unassigned disks )
disk assign 0b.xx.x or disk assign all ( for all drives )
storage disk assign -all -node <node name> ( assign all unassigned drives to node )
storage disk assign assign -disk node1:1b:20 -owner node1 ( assign 1 drive to node 1 )
cluster show = show node names
aggr status -s ( show nodes with current spacres )
LED to Show the Disk
storage disk set-led -disk 3.20.10 -action on -duration 5
The drive got assigned to the wrong controller so it assigned it as a Partner Disk when looking on the controller of the failed drive , ( Partner disks are those which are owned by the second (partner) controller. )
I tried to assign this back to the other controller using disk assign ob.xx.xx -s unowned -f on the controller that needed the spare drive however got the error message
Disk is currently owned by the partner and cannot be assigned.
sysconfig -r showed the disk as a partner disk, this means I was logged into the wrong controller to do this.
So SSH to right controller , disk assign ob.xx.xx -s unowned -f worked this time , then used disk assign 0b.xx.x again
