Issue

Aggregate creation in a cluster with mixed partitioning methods fails:
 
Cluster01::> storage aggregate create -aggregate aggr3 -simulate true -disklist 5.0.1,5.0.3,5.0.5,5.0.7,5.0.9,5.50.1,5.50.3,5.50.5,5.50.7,5.50.9,5.50.11,5.51.1,5.51.3,5.51.5,5.51.7,5.51.9,5.51.11 -node cluster01-03
 
Error: command failed: Disk "5.0.1" is partitioned with the "root-data" method, which is not supported on this system since this system is initialized with "root-data1-data2". Contact technical support for assistance
 
Note: the issue can also occur in the reverse.  For example:
 
Error: command failed: Disk "5.0.1" is partitioned with the "root-data1-data2" method, which is not supported on this system since this system is initialized with "root-data". Contact technical support for assistance
