Detaching external storages


  • After detaching an external NFS storage, the associated NFS share is left mounted.


To detach an external storage

  1. Disconnect the external storage from the compute cluster. For example, to remove the external storage pure-storage, run:

    # vinfra service compute storage remove pure-storage
  2. [For an external iSCSI storage] On each compute node, stop and disable the multipathing service:

    # systemctl stop multipathd; systemctl disable multipathd

After detaching your external storage, you will have to manually delete storage policies associated with it.
