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.

  • 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.

    For example, on Solaris hosts, the LUN has to be under DMP control. In other words, the LUN has to have a corresponding /dev/vx/dmp device.
