HPE 3PAR same physical HDD showing two IDs

We faced a failed HDD on the 3par 7200.

Once we replaced the failed HDD, until now, it still showing the OLD ID for the failed HDD and a new ID was generated for the same.

HP-3PAR cli% showpd -space 159

This may depend ...

The normal process is after you replace the disk, all data will be moved to the new disk, then the old disk will disappear.

First check "servicemag status".

May the "dismisspd 159" did not run for any reason.

In case of any doubt ask HPE support.


Hope this helps!

Re: HPE 3PAR same physical HDD showing two IDs

I did the below to solve this issue:

 

1 setpd ldalloc off <DiskID> To stop data to drive - Repeat for all PDs
2 showpd -s Make sure disks are in Degraded state
3 movepdtospare -f -vacate -nowait <DiskID> Vacate all data from PD
4 showpdch -mov See the Remaining chunklets to be moved
5 movech -perm -ovrd X:Y OPTIONAL: If getting an error, move Chunklet manually (example X is the PDID and Y is the Chunklet number) repeat till disk is empty
6 showpdch -spr <DiskID> Shows the Spare chunklets on the PD
7 removespare PDID:a Removes the Spare chunklets from the PD
8 dismisspd <DiskID> Dismisses the PD from the 3PAR

 

It helped and now 0 error on the management console.
