XP10000 Path block

Our agency has an old Xp10000 that was powered of for several months.  They want to use the space for developement VMs but since the array was powered off for so long the storage isn't accessible to hosts.  All of the volumes show a status of "blocked".  I would like to destroy all of the LDEVs and start over but I can't even do that.

 

Any ideas?

Re: XP10000 Path block

IMHO there are 2 possible reasons:

- somebody did a kind of install/uninstall to delete the data but the action did not finish

- batteries are empty

Hope this helps!

Re: XP10000 Path block

No these XP10000s do not like to be powered off for more than 2 days.  If they do then they come up in a "blocked" state.  I just want to wipe the box and start over but I can't seem to do that.  I can't delete LDEVs because of the "blocked" state.
