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. This command is not supported for a Vserver with Infinite Volume.
