remove dpmdisk RRS feed

  • Question

  • just setup a new mabs server and under management tried to add disk and the disk showed correctly to add.

    however wanted some changes in the iscsi lun, made those changes and refreshed the iscsi target. the new disk shows under disk management.

    however under dpm console when we click on add disks the old disk shows and when we try to rescan or add the disk we get the below error.

    Please see the below the output of list disk

    DISKPART> list disk

      Disk 2    Offline        7000 GB  7000 GB

    Please see the output of get-dpmdisk

    Please help me on how to remove this disk from the dpm and add the current disk 2.

    there is no data in disk3. it was initialized in the beginning however after the final changes with LUNs the DPM fails to recognize the change.

  • Hi,

    Since the disk is greater than 2TB it must be converted to GPT disk.   Convert the disk to GPT then try the rescan.
