ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

storage disk remove

Remove a spare disk

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


The storage disk remove command removes the specified spare disk from the RAID configuration, spinning the disk down when removal is complete.

This command does not remove disk ownership information from the disk. Therefore, if you plan to reuse the disk in a different storage system, you should use the storage disk removeowner command instead. See the "Physical Storage Management Guide" for the complete procedure.

For systems with multi-disk carriers, it is important to ensure that none of the disks in the carrier are filesystem disks before attempting removal. To convert a filesystem disk to a spare disk, see storage disk replace .


-disk <disk path name> - Disk Name

This parameter specifies the disk to be removed.


The following example removes a spare disk named 1.1.16:

cluster1::> storage disk remove -disk 1.1.16
