If you assign one or more aggregates to a Storage Virtual Machine (SVM, formerly known as Vserver), then you can use only those aggregates to contain volumes for that SVM. Assigning aggregates to your SVMs is particularly important in a multi-tenancy environment or when you use Infinite Volumes.
Assigning aggregates to your SVMs helps you keep your SVMs isolated from each other; this is especially important in a multi-tenancy environment. If you use Infinite Volumes, or plan to use them in the future, you must assign aggregates to your SVMs to keep your Infinite Volumes from impacting each other and any FlexVol volumes in your cluster.

|Assign additional aggregates||vserver add-aggregates|
|Unassign aggregates||vserver remove-aggregates|
In the following example, the aggregates aggr1 and aggr2 are assigned to SVM svm1:vserver add-aggregates -vserver svm1 -aggregates aggr1,aggr2
