How to change Global Spare to vDisk spare?

After disk failure we replace damaged disk with new one on Enclosure 1. And after that i make him Global spare.

But now i see that i have another Global spare disk on Enclosure 2. 

I remember that before all changes it was 1 vDisk spare and 1 Global spare disk.

Can somebody help with how to change Global Spare to vDisk spare?

Re: P2000 change vDisk spare to Global Spare

You can login to Command Line of any controller and execute the below command to remove Global Spare and make that drive again into AVAIL state,

delete global-spare
Description Deletes specified global spare disks.
Syntax: delete global-spare disks disks
Parameters: disks disks
IDs of the global spares to delete. 
Example Delete two global spares:
# delete global-spare disks 1.1,1.5
Info: Global spare disk 1.1 was deleted. (1.1)
Info: Global spare disk 1.5 was deleted. (1.5)
Success: Command completed successfully. (2012-01-20 11:32:56)

Now execute below command to assign the drive as vdisk Spare or dedicated Spare for the drive which you have removed from Global Spare state to AVAIL state as per above procedure,

Designate disk 1.3 as a dedicated spare for vdisk VD1:
# set spares disks 1.3 vdisk VD1
Info: Vdisk spare disk 1.3 was added. (1.3)
Success: Command completed successfully. (2012-01-20 10:12:01)


Try to designate a disk of one type as a spare for a vdisk using a different disk type:

# set spares disk 2.1 vdisk VD1
Error: The specified spare cannot be used. - Disk 2.1 is not the same type as the
ones currently used by the vdisks. (2.1)
Error: Command failed. (2011-10-12 10:09:30)
