How automatic ownership assignment works for disks

If your configuration follows some basic rules to avoid ambiguity, Data ONTAP can automatically assign ownership and pool membership for disks. Automatic ownership assignment is not available for array LUNs or virtual disks.

If you decide to change the way Data ONTAP has assigned the disks, you can do so at any time.

If you need to temporarily remove disk ownership for a disk while you perform an administrative task, you must disable automatic disk ownership first to prevent Data ONTAP from immediately reassigning ownership for that disk.
