Removing an enclosure from HPOV without access to Oneview appliance

Hello,

One of the enclosures in our lab used to be managed by HPOV as part of a testing. When the testing was over HPOV appliance was removed/uninstalled but the enclosure was not gracefully removed from Oneview. 

I am wondering what would be the proper process to get this enclosure back to VCM?

 

Would the following work? or do I need to factory reset everything?

1. Execute clear vcmode from the OA CLI

2. Phyiscally swap the interconnects in bays 1 and 2.

 

Regards,

Hello,

 

I was able to get my enclosure back to VCM mode using the process I mentioned in my thread:

1. Execute clear vcmode from the OA CLI

2. Phyiscally swap the interconnects in bays 1 and 2.

 

Note: point 2 is really really needed.

 

Regards,
