Dissolved shadowset

We dissolved a shadowset recently, but the virtual device name (DSA31) still appears when we run the show dev d command. For some reason it is now causing one of our monitoring scripts to fail. Is there anyway to delete/remove this DSA device name without having to reboot?

Re: Dissolved shadowset

Jesse,

as far as I know, the only way is a reboot.

Perhaps you should modify your script and add a check (FGETDVI(dec,"MNT"), if a device found is mounted.

Re: Dissolved shadowset

Jesse,

since a DSA device uses a totally different driver as (eg) a DKA, you definitely can NOT chande that without reboot.

But I would really assume your monitoring script is no completely fault-free.

Can you try running it with VERIFY (using SET HO 0/LOG will be helpfull here) and identify the failing statement in the script?

Proost.

Have one on me.
