Methods for disconnecting storage

To make it easier to disconnect the storage, SnapDrive for UNIX provides several formats for the snapdrive storage disconnect command.

This is because the disconnect operations fall into the following general categories:

  • Specifying the LUNs that you want to disconnect from the host.

  • Specifying a file system that is created directly on a LUN that you want to disconnect from the host.

    SnapDrive for UNIX disconnects both the file system and LUN.

  • Specifying a disk group, host volume, or file system that resides on LUNs you want to disconnect from the host.

    SnapDrive for UNIX disconnects all the LUNs associated with that entity, and also removes mappings for the file system, host volume, and disk group that comprise the entity you disconnected.
