6.13 Delete Partition

delete partition <partition_name>

Delete an existing partition by name.

nlvm [nlvm_options] delete partition <partition_name>

You are automatically prompted to confirm the delete action. Respond by typing yes or no, then press Enter. Use the --no-prompt NLVM option to suppress the confirmation prompt.

Before you create a Novell Cluster Services SBD partition, you must take the cluster down, and stop Novell Cluster Services from running on all nodes.

Command Options
partition_name

Mandatory. Specify the node name (such as sdc1.1) of the partition to be deleted.

Example

sdc1.1
-f , --force

Optional. The force NLVM option can be used with the delete partition command if the partition is part of a pool or move. If the partition is part of a pool, deleting the partition automatically deletes the pool. If the partition is part of a move destination, deleting the partition automatically deletes the pool move.
