Hello,

Be very careful with what you are attempting to do. If your Pool is in a fault state it is not showing the associated disk-groups and volumes correctly. If that Pool, disk-group(s), and volumes had data in them you will delete all of your data by deleting the Pool. Once you delete the Pool there is no way to recover the lost data. This is a permenant step and should be done with great caution!

The only way to delete a Pool is using the CLI. You cannot delete a Pool that is in a peer connection. For further information you can access the CLI guide to review all the cuations and instructions.

If you need help recoverying the disk-groups, volumes, or data associated with the Pool, gather a fresh set of store.logs, then please open a support case with HPE Support using the following web link, if the unit is under warranty: https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/home

If the unit is out of warranty, you can open a chat support case with HPE using the following web link to check for options: https://pg-receiver-pro.glb.itcs.hpe.com/WCLWeb/WCLEntry.aspx
