I have an Oracle RAC environment with two HP P4000 SAN devices. My new project is to add a new server into the cluster. Today, when I logged into SAN interface, I found there is already a server with the same hostname inside a server cluster object. The CHAP name is different than the server I am gonna to add. So i just renamed the CHAP name to my server, and want to make forward. My question is if I want to start it over, could I delete this server from this server cluster? Will it bring disaster effect to my RAC servers?

You can see the other two production servers are also inside this server cluster on SAN.

I am a newbie in SAN management, could you please provide help?

Thank you in advance.

If it is not being used, you should be able to reuse it.

Yes, it's safe to just remove it, better than just turning the test server off really but it was a bit late at night my time when I posted to yank the power cord out.
