Configuring automatic ownership assignment of disks

You can configure Data ONTAP to automatically assign disk ownership according to a disk's stack, shelf, or bay.

Before you begin

About this task

The behavior of the default autoassignment policy depends on the system model. For entry level models, the default policy is equivalent to the bay policy. For all other systems, it is equivalent to the stack policy.

Steps

  1. The action you take depends on whether you want to set up automatic ownership assignment at the stack (or loop), shelf, or bay level:
    If you want to... Then use the following command...
    Configure automatic ownership assignment at the stack or loop level storage disk option modify -autoassign-policy stack
    Configure automatic ownership assignment at the shelf level storage disk option modify -autoassign-policy shelf
    Configure automatic ownership assignment at the bay level storage disk option modify -autoassign-policy bay
    Turn off automatic ownership assignment storage disk option modify -autoassign off
  2. Verify the automatic assignment settings for the disks: storage disk option show
    Example
    cluster1::> storage disk option show
