Can we delete devices from list noport

Can we delete device for list noport. I want to do these because  i need hypers with different sizes.

I am trying to create device from device groups. I am getting below error

Could not find disks that satisfy our mirror/RAID policy

I have space in Disk group. Does above error means that we dont have hypes in the disk group.

If i delete device from list noport and then we can create new devices from that disk group

Re: Can we delete devices from list noport

how many disk pools do you have ? You may have available space in the disk group but these "pockets" of free space do not satisfy multiple checks that Enginuity does to ensure maximum redundancy (IE: not to place hyper of 2-way mirror device on the same physical spindle).  So while deleting un-used devices might free up some space it does not guarantee you will be able to create so many new symdev of particular size.

Re: Can we delete devices from list noport

I dont have any thin pools in my array.

If you are asking about disk groups then below is the output

Re: Can we delete devices from list noport

yes, i meant disk group, not pools. Looks like disk group 1 has the most available capacity, it's up to you to determine if that disk group contains the right disk type and has enough free space in the right "spots" to accommodate your device configuration. Run your symconfigure with prepare option to see if it fails.

I did symconfigure prepare option on disk group 1. Its throwing error.

Re: Can we delete devices from list noport

well, devices that you would like to delete, were they created in disk group 1 ?

symdisk -sid 1234 list -disk_group 1

Re: Can we delete devices from list noport

you will need to determine where to delete space from, why size devices to build ..it's really hard to help you just based on output from symdisk list.
