Unmanaging a Lenovo Storage or Nimble storage system

You can remove a Lenovo Storage or Nimble storage system from management by Lenovo XClarity Administrator. This process is called unmanaging.

Before you begin

Before you unmanage a Lenovo Storage or Nimble storage system, ensure that there are no active jobs running against the switch.

About this task

When you unmanaged a storage device, Lenovo XClarity Administrator retains certain information about the storage device. That information is reapplied when you manage the same storage device again.

Tip: All demo devices that are optionally added during initial setup are nodes in a chassis. To unmanage the demo devices, unmanage the chassis using the Force unmanage even if the device is not reachable option.

Procedure

To umanage a Lenovo Storage or Nimble storage system, complete the following steps.

  1. From the Lenovo XClarity Administrator menu bar, click Hardware > Storage to display the Storage page.
  2. Select one or more Lenovo Storage or Nimble storage systems from the lists of managed switch.
  3. Click Unmanage. The Unmanage dialog is displayed.
  4. Optional: Select Force unmanage even if the device is not reachable.
    Important: When unmanaging demo hardware, ensure that you select this option.
  5. Click Unmanage.
    The Unmanage dialog shows the progress of each step in the unmanagement process.
  6. When the unmanagement process is complete, click OK.
