Delete an entry for an NDMP backup device

If you physically remove an NDMP device from an Isilon cluster, OneFS retains the entry for the device. You can delete a device entry for a removed device. You can also remove the device entry for a device that is still physically attached to the cluster; this causes OneFS to disconnect from the device.

About this task

If you remove a device entry for a device that is connected to the cluster, and you do not physically disconnect the device, OneFS will detect the device the next time it scans the ports. You cannot remove a device entry for a device that is currently in use.

Procedure

  1. Click Data Protection > NDMP > Devices.
  2. In the Tape Devices table or the Media Changer Devices table, click the check box corresponding to the device that you want to remove.
  3. Click Delete.
  4. In the Confirm Delete dialog box, click Delete.
