Hi List,

We have this omsa error after rebooting after a disk became unmountable:-

Physical Disk 1:0:1 [Dell ST3750640NS, 750GB] on ctrl 1 needs attention:

omreport storage pdisk controller=1 pdisk=1:0:1

I've read that I could use this command to clear the foreign config to
add the drive back into the array:-

omconfig storage controller action=clearforeignconfig controller=1

However I'd like to know what array this drive is supposed to be in.

I've listed the vdisks:-

sudo omreport storage vdisk controller=1

and there seem to be 7 of them, but no obvious way of finding out which
pdisks make up the vdisks..
