    Correct way to remove a zpool and underlying storage lun

    Bazza

      Hi all,

       

      I have been scanning the solaris documentation and reviewing metalink for the correct way to first destroy a zpool and then remove the lun and clear up the device tree etc on a solaris 10 SPARC machine (u11).

       

      I have a zpool called 'holding' and it has a single underlying disk which is really a virtual volume on a 3PAR array.

       

      I know the first step is to remove all the data etc and then:

       

      $> zpool destroy holding

       

      My question is - what next next? Can I simply remove the lun then on the SAN or do I need to do some tidy up first? I'm astonished for something this simple I cannot find the relevant cfgadm commands - looked in solaris basic/advanced admin, zfs admin and SAN admin books. Surely I just haven't found it or overlooked it?

       

      I have seen some horror stories if you do not this in the correct order - Doc ID 1517820.1 is particularly unhelpful

       

      Thank you for any help
