Attempting to add new disks to an existing partitioned aggregate fails

cluster::> storage aggregate add-disks -aggregate <aggr_name> -diskcount 3 -raidgroup rg0

Info: Disks would be added to aggregate <aggr_name> on node node-01 in the following manner:

      First Plex

 RAID Group rg0, 26 disks (block checksum, raid_dp)
                                                            Usable Physical

      Position   Disk                      Type           Size     Size
      ---------- ------------------------- ----------      -------- --------
      shared     1.4.19                    SSD             723.3GB  745.2GB
      shared     1.4.20                    SSD             723.3GB  745.2GB
      shared     1.4.21                    SSD             723.3GB  745.2GB

      Aggregate capacity available for volume use would be increased by 1.91TB.

      The following disks would be partitioned: 1.4.21, 1.4.20, 1.4.19.
