Raid group size and aggregate size & fas2040 7.3.4

Currently Being Moderated



I have a FAS2040 with 16 1TB SATA disks with 1 aggregate with RAID-DP (13data disks+ 2 dp + 1 hot spare disk) with dataontap 7.3.4. Now, Aggregate raid size group is 16

No we have to add 2 additional 1 TB Sata disks, but I'm not sure if it is possible with this configuration.

I have read:

- Aggregate size can be up to 19 disks ( not sure data disks or data+parity disks), it is sure?

- With raid group size in some docs appears max size for 7.3.4 and  sata disks 16, but other docs seems appears 20 (https://communities.netapp.com/message/2676), but I'm not sure what is the correct answer...

If Max raid size group is 16, it is possilbe to make another raid group with 1 disks or reduce previous created raid group and add some disks to new raid group?


It is possible to add 2 additional SATA disks with this configuration ? How?
