lun delete

Delete the LUN

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.


This command deletes a LUN from a specified Vserver and volume. If the LUN is mapped and online, the force option is required to delete it.

If a LUN is mapped to an initiator group, you can unmap it by using the lun unmap command. If a LUN is online, you take it offline by using the lun offline command.

Note: If you create a LUN from a file, you cannot remove the file while the LUN is linked to it. If you want to remove the file, you must first delete the LUN.
