Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • Foreign aggregate 

Issue

  • 2 nodes have been removed from a 4 nodes cluster, then the nodes have been wiped-out and finally they have been joined again to the cluster. Their foreign aggregates are in a stale state (no import nor destroy possibility)
  • Cannot remove foreign aggregates to free disks and operate the shelves (Change IDs, re-create new aggregates etc.):
 ::*> aggr remove-stale-record -aggregate aggr_2 -nodename cluster01-04
 Error: command failed: Failed to delete aggregate "aggr_2". Reason: Aggregate 'aggr_2' cannot be destroyed because it is online. You will need to take it offline before destroying it.
 
 ::*> aggr offline -aggregate aggr_2 -force-offline
 Error: command failed: Failed to check if aggr_2 is a foreign(unknown) aggregate. Reason: entry doesn't exist.
 
  • Disks are still assigned:
 ::> disk show -nodelist cluster01-04 -fields owner,aggregate
 disk owner aggregate
 --------- --------------- -----------
 Info: This cluster has partitioned disks. To get a complete list of spare disk capacity use "storage aggregate show-spare-disks".
       This cluster has storage pools. To view available capacity in the storage pools use "storage pool show-available-capacity".
 3.60.0.1 cluster01-04 aggr_2
 3.60.0.2 cluster01-04 aggr_2
 3.60.1.1 cluster01-04 aggr_2
