Unable to delete the previously removed (unpresented, deleted) SAN disk from the OVM 3.0.3 manager database.
When we trying to delete the physical disk, we can't because in OVMMGR-s database there is a partition it.
When we trying to delete the partition, we can't, because the disk is unreachable.
Is there any solution?
Deleting the Disk from the OVM Manager Database is something really not easy to do or there might be no direct way to do it but from the OVM Manager UI or from the OVM_Shell
Please provide the messages in /var/log/ovs-agent.log from one of the VM Servers related to the missing disk. does the VM server gives an error about this missing disk. please run multipath -ll on the vm server look for the Disk failure.
you need to clear this disk frist from the VM server agent and you can do this by restarting the VM server. if you have VMs running on that Server you could migrate them to another servers prior of restarting it.
after restarting the all VM servers and cleaning the non exist disks. then you can move to cllear it from the VM Manager by doing a database fixup.
please provide your VM Manager Version
We have tried to run the fixup, without success.
/ovm_upgrade.sh fixup dbhost=localhost dbport=1521 dbsid=OVM dbuser=ovs dbpass=password
run OK, but the non-existent disk with the partition remained in the OVMMGR.
Is there any idea?
