CMMVC8970E: The storage pool was not deleted because there are volumes associated with the storage pool. A forced deletion is required.


You cannot delete a storage pool that has any volumes still associated with it.

User Response

Remove the associated volumes and retry the command, or use the -force flag:

rmmdiskgrp -force storage_pool

where storage_pool is either the name or the ID of a storage pool.

Use of the -force flag can result in data loss. Contact IBM Support before using this flag.
