Removing SSDs from tier in Storage Services
Posted on 2016-07-29
Currently I have a single JBOD set up with 4 ssd's and 10 hdd's
they have a pool and a disk set up which is live and runs around 15 vms.
I want to add 2 more JBOD's to this pool so I can handle an enclosure failure, however I need to put 2 of the 4 SSD's into another JBOD as I only have 6 SSD's
Is there a way for me to safely remove 2 of the SSD's in my original JBOD so I can then just expand the pool / disk to include my 2 new JBOD's
I have tried setting the disks as retired but I get the below error message
S C:\Users\m1ke hunt> Set-PhysicalDisk -FriendlyName 'PhysicalDisk20' -Usage Retired
Set-PhysicalDisk : Not Supported
At line:1 char:1
+ Set-PhysicalDisk -FriendlyName 'PhysicalDisk20' -Usage Retired
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (StorageWMI:ROOT/Microsoft/..._StorageCmdlets) [Set-Physical
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : StorageWMI 1,Set-PhysicalDisk
any help is appreciated.
