If you ran "ALTER DISKGROUP ... DROP DISK ..." for this disk, it may trigger an ASM rebalance operation automatically.

If the rebalance operation is still running, that might explain the disk being busy.

 

Other possible reasons:

  • Is the ASM disk built on top of a LVM LV? Then you would have to lvreduce/lvremove that LV so that the corresponding PV becomes free, and then vgreduce the PV out of the VG. Or if this PV is the only one in the entire VG, you can just deactivate (vgchange -a n <vgname>) and export (vgexport <vgname>) the VG to get rid of it completely.
  • Do you have some monitoring agents (like HP OVO, BMC Patrol, Nagios etc.) installed? Such a monitoring agent might keep a disk busy by periodically checking its health.
