How can I move a hard drive from one ASP to another?

I added a new hard drive to our Model 800 iSeries.  When I added the drive to an ASP I added it to ASP 5 instead of ASP 1 where the other four drives reside.  Does anyone know I can move this drive to ASP 1 and remove ASP 5?

Thanks,

Chad

The basic steps are:
1) move as much data off as possible, and stop new data from being written, use the Start ASP balance command:
STRASPBAL with *ENDALC and the appropriate unit number
This can be done during production hours.
2) In system service tools, do a remove of the unit
3) Add the unit back to the appropriate ASP.

1. No data has been written to the disk.
2. Where is this option in SST (system service tools) to remove the unit?  I heard there is one DST (dedicatied serive toosl), but can not find one in SST.

To remove a disk you have to do a manual IPL to get into DST, from there you should select:
 Work with disk units->work with disk configuration->work with ASP configuration (as far as my memory serves me right ;) ) I won't do a manual IPL to check this for you, but I'm sure you have to get into DST to remove the disk. You should find the menuoptions I mentioned or at least something very similar!
