Objective
The objective of this article is to provide step-by-step instructions on how to add and enable RAID disk pairs for logging on an M-100 when the disks are present but disabled.
Disabled disks are not available on Panorama GUI to be added for collector configuration.
 


Environment
  • Panorama M-100
  • PAN-OS 8.1


Procedure
  1. Access Panorama's CLI and run the show system raid details command to confirm disk pair is present but disabled.
admin@Panorama> show system raid details
Disk Pair A                         Unavailable
   Status                        Admin disabled
   Disk id A1                           Present
   Disk id A2                           Present

  1. Run the command request system raid add <pair value> and press "y" to continue. In this example we have added A1 or  "Disk Pair 1":
admin@Panorama> request system raid add A1
Executing this command may delete all data on the drive being added. Do you want to continue? (y or n)

Operation may take few minutes. Check 'show system raid detail' for status
  1. Repeat the above steps to add disk A2.
  2. The operation may take some time to complete and when completed, the output of show system raid details should look like this:
admin@Panorama> show system raid details
Disk Pair A                           Available
   Status                                clean
   Disk id A1                           Present
       model        : ST91000640NS
       size         : 953869 MB
       status       : active sync
   Disk id A2                           Present
       model        : ST91000640NS
       size         : 953869 MB
       status       : active sync
  1. If the operation has not yet been completed, the output will look similar to this:
     
Disk Pair A                           Available
   Status       clean, degraded, recovering (10% complete)
   Disk id A1                           Present
       model        : ST91000640NS
       size         : 953869 MB
       status       : active sync
   Disk id A2                           Present
       model        : ST91000640NS
       size         : 953869 MB
       status       : spare rebuilding
 
  1. Add the disk pair on GUI: Panorama> Managed collectors> -log collector name-> Disks Tab> Add. The disk pair will be added even when the rebuild is not yet complete.

  2. Commit to Panorama to complete the operation.
     

 



Additional Information
By default, the Panorama M-100 ships with two disks configured in a RAID 1 pair, and the drives are located on bays A1 and A2 respectively. The procedure is the same if additional disk pairs are present but disabled as well.
