Converting a data disk to a hot spare

Data disks can be converted to hot spares by destroying the aggregate that contains them.

Before you begin

The aggregate to be destroyed cannot contain volumes.

About this task

Converting a data disk to a hot spare does not change the ownership information for that disk. You must remove ownership information from a disk before moving it to another storage system.


  1. Destroy the aggregate that contains the disk by entering the following command:aggr destroy aggr_name
    All disks in use by that aggregate are converted to hot spare disks.
