Assign unowned disk in NetApp

Posted: September 26, 2016 in NetApp

A couple of days ago I receive and E-mail from one of our NET APP storage with the following header: HA Group Notification from NetApp04 (FILESYSTEM DISK FAILED) WARNING. Next Day I checked the storage and I found failed disk with a flashing amber led. To my benefit I had purchased 4 spare disks a couple of months back and replaced the failed disk.  

  1. I opened in the NetApp OnCommand System Manager 3.0
  2. Logged in to the storage
  3. Found an unassigned disk



  4. If you try to assign it the options are grayed out.
  5. Login to Storage using SSH (putty or another app)
  6. On the Shell enter command “disk show -n”12
  7. Next on the Shell insert command “disk assign %disk name%” (in this case disk name is 0C.008)3
  8. After disk has been reassigned you will begin to see that reconstruction has begun.4
  9. On the NetApp OnCommand System Manager 3.0 you will see that the disk has been assigned and data is showing up.5

System is now running smoothly, enjoy the post.
