  • ONTAP 9
  • Advanced Disk Partitioning (ADP)
  • Unassigned disk drives

Answer

The proper way of partitioning drives is through system initialization and storage expansion. It is possible to partition the drives manually, however the procedure is available for recovery purposes and is not supported on new shelves or disks deployment.

For system initialization, see KB: What are the steps followed to configure advanced drive partitioning from ONTAP boot menu option 9 on HA pair?

For storage expansion, see KB: How to add partitioned disks to a new raidgroup

If manual partitioning of a disk is required, please contact NetApp Technical Support for assistance and reference this article.
