Remove MetroCluster SyncMirror

To free up disk space we had to remove a syncmirror relationship for a NetApp metrocluster. The metrocluster functionality was not used, only normal HA functionality. So these are the steps we took, and it was actually quite easy.

Summary Of Commands

These are the commands that were needed to get to our end goal:

  • aggr offline plex2
  • aggr destroy plex 2
  • disk zero spares
    • monitor: vol status -s
  • aggr options aggr0 raidtype raid_dp
    • monitor: aggr status aggr0 -r

Additionally we wanted to move the disks to one of the filers instead of keeping them on their originating filer:

  • disk remove_ownership
  • disk assign
  • aggr options aggr0 raidsize 20
  • aggr add aggr0 -d

And finally you'll have to remove the syncmirror license:

  • license delete cf_remote

Full Log of Commands on Destination Filer

The commands to destroy the plex and zero the disks:

filer02> aggr destroy /aggr0/plex2
Are you sure you want to destroy this plex? y
Plex 'aggr0/plex2' destroyed.
filer02> aggr status -r aggr0
Aggregate aggr0 (online, raid4) (block checksums)
  Plex /aggr0/plex0 (online, normal, active, pool0)
    RAID group /aggr0/plex0/rg0 (normal, block checksums)

So, current settings:

  • raidsize = 16
  • Current disks in raidgroup = 8
  • Available spare disks = 12 (keep 2 spares)
  • raidsize should be = 8+12

Set raidsize to 20 and assign disks to aggr0:

filer02> aggr options aggr0 raidsize 20
filer02> aggr options aggr0

aggr add: Disk '0d.16' is from the wrong pool. Use the -f option to override this check.
