Deleting a volume removes the data in the volume and frees the space to be used by other volumes in the same pool. When you delete a volume, it is salvageable until one of the following events occurs:
Volume Purge Delay times out. The deleted volume is purged automatically. For information, see Section 26.2.1, Setting the Purge Delay for All Deleted Volumes.
You manually purge the deleted volume. For information, see Section 26.4, Viewing, Salvaging, or Purging Deleted NSS Volumes in a Pool.
During the purge delay time, the deleted volume is salvageable, but the space belonging to the deleted volume is not available to other volumes and. When the purging process begins, the volume is no longer salvageable.
If it is necessary, you can restore a deleted volume before it is purged. See Section 26.4, Viewing, Salvaging, or Purging Deleted NSS Volumes in a Pool.
You cannot use iManager to delete a sys: volume. Deleting a sys: volume removes the operating system. You need to reinstall NetWare to delete a sys: volume. However, if the sys: volume you want to delete does not contain the active operating system (for example, a remnant on a previously used disk), you can rename the volume, then delete it.
