When adding disk to aggr fails with no matching spare disk in pool 0

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9.5p17
  • FAS2554


When trying to add disk into a aggregate receiving the following errors.
  • From system manager: 

Error: Cannot add capacity to the aggregate because of insufficient matching spare disks.

  • From cluster shell: 

Error: command failed: Addition of disks would fail for aggregate "xxx" on node "xxx". Reason: 1 disk needed from Pool0, but no matching disks are available in that pool.

However the disk that are in the aggregate and in the spare pool are the same model.
