Modifying aggregates for SVMs

You must specify the aggregates for an SVM so that SVM administrators can view the list of available aggregates before performing provisioning operations that require an aggregate name—for example, creating a volume. You can add or remove aggregates to specify the aggregates list for the SVM.

About this task

As a cluster administrator, you can perform all the operations that require an aggregate name. When you specify the aggregate for the SVM, you can perform the same limited provisioning operations as the SVM administrator. However, you can move the volumes and copy the volumes across aggregates.

Steps

  1. Add or remove aggregates for the SVM:
    • Use the vserver add-aggregates command to add aggregates to the list of aggregates for the SVM.
      The following command adds the aggregates aggr0 and aggr1 to the list of aggregates for the SVM vs1.example.com:
      cluster1::> vserver add-aggregates -vserver vs1.example.com -aggregates aggr0, aggr1
      
    • Use the vserver remove-aggregates command to remove aggregates from the list of aggregates for the SVM.
      The following command removes aggr0 from the list of aggregates for the SVM vs1.example.com:
      cluster1::> vserver remove-aggregates -vserver vs1.example.com -aggregates aggr0
      
  2. Use the vserver show -instance command to view the list of aggregates assigned to the SVM.
    Example
    The following command shows the list of aggregates assigned to the SVM vs1.example.com:
    cluster1::> vserver show -instance -vserver vs1.example.com
    
                                        Vserver: vs1.example.com
                                   Vserver Type: data
                                Vserver Subtype: default
                                  ...
                                  ...
                    List of Aggregates Assigned: aggr1
                                 ...
                                 ...

Result

The modified aggregates list is available for the provisioning operations for the SVM.
