Deleting virtual drives - DELL MD3000

I thought I had deleted all my disk groups before created three new ones. Now I see the new ones as well as two ‘old’ ones.

Under Modify > Delete Virtual Disks the button Delete is grayed out. I’ve rebooted the server as well as the storage arrays. Because I’ve has multiple issues with disks I’ve put in quite a few new disks. I can’t imagine that these disks are doing anything if this group even exists at all.

What will allow me to blow everything out, ensuring I get these two ‘ghost’ disk groups so I can start over?

The two disk groups have a red 'strike out' line through them.

The read strike out means they are degraded or corupt

If the delete option is not available you will have to wait until the active process completes, before you can delete them

what size and speed are your drives, they must be large and slow, and your virtual disks must be quite big too, if they are taking that long

How long is too long, 4 hours?  They are 300Gb disks and the virtual disks are 1.8 - 2.3 Tb. The three new virtual disk are through initializing.

I can't remember how long it took me the last time, but I remember having to leave one overnight.
