Removing a disk

Description

Removing a disk

The Storage> disk remove command allows you to remove disks from a cluster. This command is helpful in situations when the disk attributes are incorrectly listed in FileStore.

Note:

Only the disks that are not a part of a pool can be removed.

The Storage> disk remove command will not destroy the data on the disk, but it removes the disk from the system's configuration. Rebooting the cluster or running scanbus will bring back the disk into the system's configuration. To remove the disk permanently from the system's configuration, you should remove the disk's mapping from the array.

To remove a disk from a cluster

  • To remove a disk from a cluster, enter the following:

    Storage> disk remove disk1[,disk2,...]

    disk1

    Indicates the first disk name that you want to remove from the cluster.

    disk2

    Indicates the second disk name that you want to remove from the cluster.

    Disk names are comma-separated without any spaces between the disk names.

    For example:

    Storage> disk remove emc0_03ff
    Deleting disk emc0_03ff .......
    Deleting disk emc0_03ff .......
    Deleting disk emc0_03ff .......... done
