Adding or removing a column from a secondary tier of a file system

You can add a column to a secondary tier of a file system.

To add a column to a secondary tier of a file system

  • To add a column to a secondary tier of a file system, enter the following:

    Storage> tier addcolumn fs_name ncolumns pool_or_disk_name

    fs_name

    Specifies the file system for which you want to add a column to a secondary tier of the file system.

    ncolumn

    Specifies the number of columns that you want to add to the secondary tier of the file system.

    Note:

    In the case of striped file systems, the number of disks that are specified should be equal to the number of columns (ncolumns).

    Note:

    In the case of mirrored-striped and striped-mirrored file systems, the disks that are specified should be equal to (ncolumns * number_of_mirrors_in_fs).

    pool_or_disk_name

    Specifies the pool or the disk name for the tiered file system.

    For example, to add two columns to the secondary tier of file system fs1, enter the following:

    Storage> tier addcolumn fs1 2 pool3

To remove a column from a secondary tier of a file system

  • To remove a column from a secondary tier of a file system, enter the following:

    Storage> tier rmcolumn fs_name

    where fs_name is the name of the tiered file system, the secondary tier of which you want to remove the column from.

    For example:

    Storage> tier rmcolumn fs1
