One of my physical disks failed because it had a loose connection in the drive bay. Where do I reset a flag for the failed disk or something similar that Nutanix tries again with the same disk?

Get disk info:
- lsblk

Re-add as "failed" identified disk:
- ncli disk list-tombstone-entries
- ncli disk rm-tombstone-entry serial-number=*SERIAL*
- ncli disk list-tombstone-entries

Hi Ibinema,

 

When you re-seat the disk, it should automatically be added to the node and cluster.

If the disk still shows red, go to Prism → Hardware -->Diagram please click on the disk in question in and click on repartition and add.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Thank you
