Issue

After inserting new drives into the system they show up as 'unknown'
Example:
Cluster_A::> storage disk show -container-type unknown
                     Usable           Disk    Container
Container
Disk                   Size Shelf Bay Type    Type        Name      Owner
---------------- ---------- ----- --- ------- ----------- --------- --------
1.20.3                    -    20   3 SSD     unknown     -
2.30.3                    -    30   3 SSD     unknown     -
2 entries were displayed.
 
When attempting to view the partitions no information can be displayed
Example:
 
Cluster_A::*> storage disk partition show -partition *1.20.3*
                          Usable  Container     Container
Partition                 Size    Type          Name              Owner
------------------------- ------- ------------- ----------------- -----------------
1.20.3.P1                 -       -             -                 -
1.20.3.P2                 -       -             -                 -
1.20.3.P3                 -       -             -                 -
 
After removing ownership of the partitions and assigning them to the correct node, they add a foreign aggregate to the system
Example:
 
Cluster_A-01> aggr status
aggr0(1) failed          raid_dp, aggr         diskroot, raidtype=raid_dp, raidsize=24, 
                         foreign               raid_lost_write=on, resyncsnaptime=5,
