Remove disk shelf from HA pair

I want to remove a disk shelf from a HA pair and connect that disk shelf into an another HA pair.

Hope someone will correct if my steps below are wrong..

1- Destroy the aggregate (I snapmirrored all volumes to an another aggregate which is not part of this disk shelf and moved the root volume too).

2- cf disable.

3- disk zero all

4.disk asign <disk id> -s onowned on eat a time for all the disks on that shelf.

5- halt both controllers.

7. power down the shelf and remove it

I am not sure whether I have to power down the controllers.

Re: Remove disk shelf from HA pair

You do not need to power down controllers, but you need halt both of them.
