A LUN is deactivated in the below conditions as per the documentation but need to verify from management console if the lun is active/not. If you do not have access to the console, I would suggest to reach out to the riverbed support asap.

LUN Status Degraded
Indicates that a LUN is unavailable for any of these issues:
•  A LUN is deactivated. A LUN will be deactivated if the blockstore has a critical amount of low space and this particular LUN has a high rate of new writes.
•  Initialization of the blockstore for the LUN fails.
Check if the data center LUN was offlined in SteelFusion Core while IO operations were in progress.
This alarm clears when you reactivate the LUN through the Management Console or the CLI.
