ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

lun delete

Delete the LUN

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.


This command deletes a LUN from a specified Vserver and volume. If the LUN is mapped and online, the force option is required to delete it.

If a LUN is mapped to an initiator group, you can unmap it by using the lun mapping delete command. If a LUN is online, you take it offline by using the lun offline command.
