The snapdrive storage delete command has some restrictions in SnapDrive for UNIX.

  • When you delete a file system, SnapDrive for UNIX always removes the file system’s mount point.

    Linux hosts allow you to attach multiple file systems to a single mountpoint. However, SnapDrive for UNIX requires a unique mountpoint for each file system. The snapdrive storage delete command fails if you use it to delete file systems that are attached to a single mount point.

  • If you use the -lun option to specify the name of a LUN that is a member of either a host disk group or a file system, the snapdrive storage delete command fails.

  • If you use -lun option to specify the name of the LUN that is not discovered by multipathing software on the host, the snapdrive storage delete command fails.

snapdrive storage delete command fails while using RDM LUN, if the mapping igroup has more than two World Wide Port Names (WWPN) in releases prior to SnapDrive 5.2 for UNIX.
