Re: removing internal disk

What filesystem is on that disk?

If it doesn't contain the OS and the filesystem isn't busy, you could unmount it.

Re: removing internal disk

Hi Deepan,

 

Is this is a local disk or Storage LUN?

Is that disk is placed under any Volume group(VG)?

if it is YES,

unmount the file system reside on this VG.

#umount <file system name>

 

Remove the logical volumes created on this disk.

#lvremove /dev/dsk/<logical volume name>

 

Remove the VG from that disk

#vgremove /dev/<volume group name>

 

Remove the disk from VG

#pvremove /dev/rdsk/<physical volume path>
