un-EFI parition a disk in 11.31

/dev/rdisk/disk11 was a DRD Clone
I did a drd unhost.
I also did a "idisk -R /dev/rdisk/disk11"

But somehow the partitions remain - disk11_p1 to disk11_p3.

I want to reuse this disk as an LVM whole disk (disk11).

Hw do I get rid of these EFI partitions?

I recall doing it successfully before but recall I can't.

TIA.

Just guessing:

pvcreate?

Hi:

JRF,

efi_rm removes a file in an EFI partition - it doesn't remove an EFI partition.

I think all you need to do after the "idisk -R" is actually just "rmsf /dev/*disk/disk11_p*"

Davis can tell you:

But I think a "pvcreate" against the whole disk would do the same.

Hope this helps!
