Deleting a Disk Array

Deleting a Disk Array

The last array created must be the first deleted.

  All the data and programs in the array are lost during this procedure. Before proceeding, back up any data and programs that you want to save.

To delete a disk array:
  1.  Start the RAID configuration program by inserting the IBM  SCSI-2 Fast/Wide PCI-Bus Adapter Configuration Option Diskette  into the  primary diskette drive  and turning on the system.  If the system already is turned on,  press Ctrl+Alt+Del.

     Select Start RAID Configuration program  from the PC DOS start-up menu,  the Main Menu appears.

  2.  Select Create/delete array from the Main Menu.
  3.  Select Delete disk array from  the Create/Delete Array menu.  The cursor will be active in the Array list.
  4.  Review the Date Created column in the Logical Drive list, then  press the Up Arrow (  ) key or the Down Arrow (  )  key to highlight  the most recently defined array.

      All the data and programs in the array will be lost during this  procedure.

  5.  Press Del. The Confirm pop-up window appears.


  6.  If you do not want to delete the array, select No.  To delete the array, select Yes.

    NOTE:   To use hard disks from the existing array when creating  a new array,  you must confirm the deletion of the existing array.

If a defunct drive is still in a bay, the status shows a blank bay, as though there is no drive in that bay. When you replace the drive, the status will show RDY after you reconfigure and select Yes in the Confirm pop-up window.

NOTE: In some operating systems, deleting an array and associated logical drives might change the drive letters assigned to the existing drives.
