If you have unowned disks on a stack, loop, or shelf, you can configure Data ONTAP to automatically assign disk ownership at the stack or shelf level.
For most system configurations, you can use automatic assignment at the stack or loop level; for smaller configurations, you can use automatic assignment at shelf level.
You can use automatic assignment at the shelf level for the following system configurations:
With shelf level automatic assignment, you can have one shelf for one pool and one shelf for the other pool.
If the disks on a single shelf have ownership split between two systems, you need to manually assign those disks; you cannot use automatic disk assignment for the disks on that shelf.
