How to unfail a disk?

Hi

I'm looking for help on how to unfail a disk.

I'm running some test on non-production system (yet) and failed one of the disks.

VCC::Smiley Embarassed storage disk fail -disk VCC-01:0a.10.4

(waited for copy to finish and removed failed disk)

Now, trying to put it back online as spare:

VCC::*> storage disk unfail -disk VCC-01:0a.10.4 -s true

Error: command failed: Failed to unfail the disk. Reason: Disk 0a.10.4 not found.

VCC::*> storage disk unfail -disk 0a.10.4 -s true

Error: command failed: Failed to unfail the disk. Reason: Disk 0a.10.4 not found.

but system 'sees' the disk:

VCC::*> storage disk show

                     Usable           Container

Disk                   Size Shelf Bay Type        Position   Aggregate Owner

---------------- ---------- ----- --- ----------- ---------- --------- --------

...

VCC-01:0a.10.4            -    10   4 broken      present    -         -

...

What am I missing?

Thank you.

Dmitri,

I am guessing that you are running in cluster mode?  If this is the case, I believe you need to specify the node to which the disk belongs.

Try this : storage disk unfail -disk VCC-01:0a.10.4 -s true

Hope this helps.

You might also try this :

> storage disk modify -disk VCC-01:0a.10.4 -state unfail

Michael,

Yes, it's 8.2P2 in C-mode, sorry forgot to mention.

VCC::*> storage disk unfail -disk VCC-01:0a.10.4 -s true

Error: command failed: Failed to unfail the disk. Reason: Disk 0a.10.4 not found.

VCC::*> storage disk modify -disk VCC-01:0a.10.4 -state unfail

Error: command failed: Failed to unfail the disk. Reason: Disk not found.

VCC::*> storage disk modify -disk VCC-01:0a.10.4 -state spare

Error: command failed: Failed to unfail the disk. Reason: Disk 0a.10.4 not found.

My goal is to clear 'broken' state and make is spare.

Thank you.

Re: How to unfail a disk?

Very interesting.  Your syntax is correct.  Those commands should have worked.

You could then try to "run" the unfail command against the owning node.

>run -node "nodename" disk unfail -s 0a.10.4

If it still cannot find the disk...maybe you could remove it from the shelf and re-seat it?

Re: How to unfail a disk?

I should have prefaced that last statement. You will need to be in "diag" mode before you can run that command.

1) >set diag

2)) >run -node "nodename" disk unfail -s 0a.10.4
