Symptoms

It might be necessary to remove a virtual drive if the mappings for the drives show disks in the wrong slots.

In the case here, removing a virtual drive which is not an OS drive fails as below.

# MegaCli64 CfgLdDel Ln a0
Virtual Disk n is an OS drive - cannot be deleted without force option.

Exit Code: 0x01

 

Example output with virtual drive 11 looks like:

# MegaCli64 CfgLdDel L11 a0

Exit Code: 0x01
