I have deleted a pool to reclaim the PG and add it to another Pool in VSP.
But after i delete the POOL, the PG(LDEV) become blocked status.
How to clear PG blocked status and use it for another pool.
Hitachi Storage Navigator->Logical Devices->More Action Button->Format LDEVs
is it possible to use without formatting?
Its RG used in another POOL. I have deleted the POOL, but the RG on that Pool become blocked state.
There is Restore option in Action, will it help?
Restore LDEVs won't work here as those LDEVs are currently not assigned to original host.
So better you go for formatting them.
"Normally" before HCS 8.1.2
That's correct, DP Pool Vols will become blocked LDEVs as a result of Pool Shrink operation
Before to reuse those LDEVs, a format operation will be necessary.
It’s not possible to reuse the former DP Pool Vols without formatting.
Under HCS 8.1.2, DP Pool Vols will become normal LDEVs as a result of Pool Shrink operation because the quick format operation will be automatically initiated.
Keep in mind that the operation will impact performance.
It’s recommended to launch this operation during low activity period or to schedule it in the appropriate period.
Hope this helps, BR,
