Should unmirrored aggregates in a fabric attached MetroCluster be local?

Last Updated:


Applies to

  •  MetroCluster
  • Fabric attached
  • Unmirrored aggregates


Using unmirrored aggregates in fabric attached MetroCluster system, all disks from this aggregate should be local to the node owning the aggregate but attached through the fabric and visible to all nodes in the MetroCluster.

Verify which disks are not local to the system by executing the 'disk show -aggregate <aggregate> -fields is-local-attach' command.

siteA::> disk show -aggregate <aggregate> -fields is-local-attach
disk is-local-attach
------- ---------------
3.22.13 false
3.22.14 false
3.22.15 false
3 entries were displayed.

Verify if the aggregate is intended to be mirrored and mirror it.
