How to move root vol on NetApp

I have a FAS2520, dual controller, with 12-900 GB SAS disks I want assigned to Controller 1 for Hyper-V VMs and a DS4246 with 24-2 TB SATA disks I want assigned to Controller 2 for storage. It seems that 3 of my SAS disks are configured somehow on Controller 2. All aggregates are configured with RAID-DP. I currently have the following configured for volumes and aggregates:

Controller 1, vol0 (250GB) on aggr0 (4.41TB), this is the root aggregate.

Controller 2, vol0 (250GB) on aggr0 (250GB), this is the root aggregate.
Controller 2, vol_files (3TB) on aggr1_files (17.46TB), this I created for storage.

From what I see, I believe the aggr0 on Controller 2 is using 3 SAS disks from Controller 1. How can I verify that? And if that is the case, can I move that to disks on Controller 2 so I can free up the 3 SAS disks for Controller 1? And if so, how do I do that?

I do see now how to verify this in OnCommand, and it is what I thought, aggr0 on Controller 2 is using 3 SAS disks from Controller 1. So is there a way to move aggr0 to SATA disks on Controller 2 so I can use the 3 SAS disks for VMs on Controller 1? And if so, does it have to have a different name since aggr0 for Controller 1 already exists? And what is the procedure?

follow the steps in this video

keep in mind that each controller is independent and has a aggr0 and vol0

This is on the same controller but can be on a different one.  Just make sure the controller you want to move has an aggregate on the shelf that's connected to this controller.
