The disk unpartition command doesn't work. Neither does the system node run. I was able to get the process started (I think) but then the system, crashed and I"m stuck in this "takeover" boot loop and nothing seems to work now.
Can I not just reboot the node, CTRL+C, option 4 to initialize, zero out all disks, then perform the sanitization after?
They were partitioned but I belived in a clunky way I removed that by destroying volumes, RG's etc...They were just spinning disk, no SSD.
I had already enabled sanitization and I belive I got it to run but then at one point the nodes crashed and rebooted. Then I got stuck in this "takeover" situation wedre the commands to correct that don't sdeem to be working. THat's why I"m leaning towards just zeroing out all disk. Then I know they willl be spares and then run a sanitize.
I will get the output in a minute here for you, if I can get a login prompt.
This is 7-mode, verion 8.2. [Disks] were partitioned
7-Mode never supported partitioned disks. It sounds like you tried to sanitize root aggregate which you cannot do for obvious reasons. Now you are left without root volume/aggregate. If this is HA pair and partner still works you may try to complete sanitize from partner. If this is standalone controller, it may be possible to do it from network boot, but I am not sure if it will work.
So when the zeoring out is done, I would assume I'm in a good state to then run the sanitize on all disk. The unit is NOT going ot be re-used and is simply going to be scapped. So do I still need to create a 2-3 disk aggregate for some strange reason before running the sanitize if this array is going ot the scrap yard?
