Assigning ownership for disks partitioned for root-data partitioning

For partitioned disks, there are three different entities for ownership: the container disk, the data partition, and the root partition. You can set the ownership of the container disk or the partitions manually or by using autoassignment—just as you do for unpartitioned disks.

About this task

You can think of the three owned entities (the container disk and the two partitions) as being collectively owned by the HA pair. The container disk and the two partitions do not all need to be owned by the same node in the HA pair as long as they are all owned by one of the nodes in the HA pair. However, when you use a partition in an aggregate, it must be owned by the same node that owns the aggregate.

Steps

  1. Display the current ownership for the partitioned disk: storage disk show -disk disk_name -partition-ownership
  2. Enter the appropriate command, depending on which ownership entity you want to assign ownership for:
    If you want to assign ownership for the... Use this command...
    Container disk storage disk assign -disk disk_name -owner owner_name
    Data partition storage disk assign -disk disk_name -owner owner_name -data true
    Root partition storage disk assign -disk disk_name -owner owner_name -root true
    If any of the ownership entities are already owned, then you must include the -force option.
