Removing vFRC

Jump to solution

Hi..

I'm battling with a ESX 5.5 server on which I activated the vFRC to test.

I don't need it anymore, I will just use the SSD as a datastore but when I try to remove all vFrc SSD, it says :

The "Remove virtual flash resource" operation failed for the entity with the following error message.

The virtual flash resource is in use. Ensure that virtual flash host swap cache is disabled and VMs on this host are not using virtual Flash Read Cache.

The host swap cache is disabled.

I even reinstalled the ESX.

Same thing.

the partition is still VFFS

VFFS       185.5G 1013.0M    184.5G   1% /vmfs/volumes/vffs-52dea806-2b92-b7dc-7772-9d60f880384c

I tried deleting it using:

~ # partedUtil delete /dev/disks/naa.6b083fe0e7cb8a001cfc89481b871226 1

Error: Read-only file system during write on /dev/disks/naa.6b083fe0e7cb8a001cfc89481b871226

Unable to delete partition 1 from device /dev/disks/naa.6b083fe0e7cb8a001cfc89481b871226

any idea??

So, I went to the Perc controler and init the drive.

Not worked. Tried again everything.,.

I went back and did a full init... and worked...
