ONTAP System Manager 9.7 and later

Answer

This is expected behavior if the raid groups belonging to the aggregate are nearly full. There is an algorithm in ONTAP that purposely avoids adding disks to
prevent creating a "hotspot" on the aggregate. 

There are no such restrictions while adding the spares from CLI.

Users can add spare disks using the CLI or create a larger raid group on the aggregate by utilizing additional spare disks through System Manager.
