vSAN - unable to remove failed disk from disk group

Jump to solution

Hi,

Is it not best practice to remove the failed disk from the disk group before its replacement?

Am unable to do so:

This was the closest one: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2150567

in this case the disk can be removed manually as follows:

Verify the disk appears: (Was showing as Device: Uknown and had matching UUID)

esxcli vsan storage list

Remove the disk:

esxcli vsan storage remove --uuid xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

and the verify its removed with:

esxcli vsan storage list

 

Above process worked fine and solved the issue
