Goal

The purpose of this document is to describe how to reset an array to factory defaults using Sun Storage Common Array Manager (CAM).

Resetting a storage array configuration deletes the entire array configuration. In addition, it removes all data from the array and refreshes the settings to factory defaults. Reset the array configuration only to correct errors that cannot be corrected by any other method.

CAUTION: This command is extremely destructive. It will erase all the configuration information including arrayname.

The procedure described below should not be used on a Sun Storage 2500-M2 array. Please contact Oracle Support for assistance to reset the configuration of a 2500-M2 array.  For details, see <Document 1519083.1> Sun Storage Common Array Manager (CAM) Returns the Alarm with Event Code 93.66.9999 and Fault ID 434 for a Sun Storage 2500-M2 Array.
