rmvdev -vdev backing_device

e.g.

rmvdev -vdev hdisk7

If backing device is an LV you can specify "-rmlv" to delete the LV in the same go:

rmvdev -vdev backing_lv -rmlv

e.g.

rmvdev -vdev my_lv -rmlv

Instead of specifying the backing device you can also specify the virtual target device:

rmvdev -vtd virtual_target

e.g.

rmvdev -vtd vtscsi7

If there are several virtual target devices associated with the backing device in question use the "-f" flag to remove them all:

rmvdev -vdev hdisk7 -f

"rmvdev" is the only available (and well documented, by the way) command to remove a backing device from a vSCSI host on the IBM VIOS.
Thus the answer in

is valid and verifiable (e. g. by "man  rmvdev"), it should be accepted.
