Issue

Within the ONTAP CLI, the node appears to have spare disks available: 

cluster1::> storage aggregate show-spare-disks

Original Owner: cluster1-01
 Pool0
  Root-Data Partitioned Spares
                                                              Local    Local
                                                               Data     Root Physical
 Disk             Type   Class          RPM Checksum         Usable   Usable     Size Status
 ---------------- ------ ----------- ------ -------------- -------- -------- -------- --------
 1.0.19           SAS    performance  10000 block                0B  53.88GB  838.4GB not zeroed
 1.0.20           SAS    performance  10000 block                0B  53.88GB  838.4GB not zeroed
 1.0.21           SAS    performance  10000 block                0B  53.88GB  838.4GB not zeroed
 1.0.22           SAS    performance  10000 block                0B  53.88GB  838.4GB not zeroed
 1.0.23           SAS    performance  10000 block                0B  53.88GB  838.4GB not zeroed
5 entries were displayed.

However, attempting to create an aggregate using the disks listed fails:
cluster1::*> storage aggregate create -aggregate newaggr -disklist 1.0.19,1.0.20,1.0.21,1.0.22,1.0.23 -node cluster1-01

Error: command failed: Aggregate creation would fail for aggregate "newaggr" on
       node "cluster-01". Reason: disk 1.0.19 is not a spare disk.
