After working with DS and XIV I was thinking this IBM N Series were easy to understand and manager but at least for me it's not
I attached some screens
I was thinking that since this is Active/Active I had to manage just one virtual controller that managed all 12 Hard Drives - N3300 12 SATA 1 HDD -
But I see some designation at disk configuration saying partner - present and right now I have one aggregate for controller how this is suppose to work
in the way it is configured I am loosing too much space that's why I want to use all 12 hard in just one big aggregate or tell me how this is suppose to be manage
thanks a lot guys
any PDF is appreciated

why my aggr0 in Filer1 has 3,46TB total space and this aggregate has 7 disks
this means there are 2 parity Disk and one spare right? that will explain why few space having 1 TB Disk in DP Raid Am I right?
4 x 828 GB = 3,46 more or less

Nseries (Netapp) is not that easy to explain, so I dont think its explainable in a forum. I recommend that you take a course or read the redbook.
Nseries is not like blockstorage, its NAS, which means its filesystem based and more complicated.
