how to use force flag in restApi to reduce lun size?


i want to reduce a size of lun which is attached to host by restApi

i am getting this error


Reducing LUN size without coordination with the host system may cause permanent data loss or corruption.. Use the force flag to allow LUN size reduction.

You do realize all the sequences you'll get after downsizing a LUN, aren't you?

Most applications will not survive such a reduction.


A better option is to make LUN thinly provisioned instead.
