Removing Online Spare with saconfig

Is there a command to remove an online spare from an array using saconfig without deleting the array? I want to use the physical disk that was assigned as an online spare in another array. If I create a new array using the same physical disk that was assigned as an online spare will it affect the original array?

Ed,

Yes. You can delete the Spare Drive assigned to you Logical drive. First make sure you get correct drive number ( Channel and Target ) of the Spare Drive using saconfig command. Then use saconfig -D -s to delete it.

No . You can't use the Spare drive assigned to a logical drive already with a new logical drive. Remember you crate a Spare drive by associating it with already configured Logical Drive.

I guess you are referring an array as another logical drive.

Hence you can delete it first from original logical drive and put it bak to new logical drive .
