Attempting to resurrect a FAS3040 with new DS4243 3TB shelf.

Currently Being Moderated

I have a FAS3040 we plan to resurrect for a mirror target.

- Currently running 7.3.5.1P1 and needs to be on 8.1.2

- Purchased a new DS4243 shelf full with 3TB drives

- Cabled HA single SAS 4-port card single Head

 

Here is the issue we need to solve.....

 

When attempting to "Initialize owned disks" in order to lay down ontap I get the following error:

 

(1)  Normal boot.

(2)  Boot without /etc/rc.

(3)  Change password.

(4)  Initialize owned disks (3 disks are owned by this filer).

(4a) Same as option 4, but create a flexible root volume.

(5)  Maintenance mode boot.

 

 

Selection (1-5)? Thu May 23 04:24:26 GMT [shelf.config.mpha:info]: All attached storage on the system is multi-pathed HA.

4a

The system has 3 disks assigned whereas it needs 3 to boot, will try to assign the required number.

Zero disks and install a new file system? y

This will erase all the data on the disks, are you sure? y

Zeroing disks takes about 0 minutes.

Thu May 23 04:28:43 GMT [coredump.spare.none:info]: No sparecore disk was found.

Unable to create root volume: Not enough disks

 

Any Ideas?

    One possibility is that disks are too new for Data ONTAP version. Did you check minimum requirements? If you will go to 8.x anyway, I would install this version straight away.

      The head has been in storage for the past year without any shelves.  I am attempting to upgrade to 8.x after I get a base install and the system can boot off disk.  I will check the compatibility matrix now and get back to you.  Thanks for the fast response.

      Minimum Data ONTAP version 7.3.2, 8.0, 8.1

           We are running 7.3.5.1P1 so I think we are good here

        When I select SATA drives in DS4243 for 7.3.5.1 in HWU I see only drives up to 2TB.

              go for 5, maintenance mode, and see if "disk show -v" shows you an existing ownership maybe? And if it shows you disks at all. ;-)
