  • "host": indicates a host.
  • "host_group": indicates a host group.
  • "lun_group": indicates a LUN group.
  • "port_group": indicates a port group.
  • "mapping_view": indicates a mapping view.

Developer view

Usage Guidelines

  • Running this command will delete DB information and may bring high risks. Contact technical support before running this command.
  • The command can delete the following objects: hosts, host groups, LUN groups, port groups, and mapping views.
  • Restart all controllers before re-configuring the mapping.
  • After using this command to delete hosts, delete the host groups to which the hosts you deleted belong to, otherwise host groups may fail to run properly and users may not be able to delete host groups in the user view and developer view.
  • When deleting host groups, if ports groups were added to the mapping view to which the host groups you want to delete were added, delete the port groups first, otherwise, faults will be reported.
  • After the LUN group is deleted, the output of the "show lun general" command indicates that the "Is Add To Lun Group" attribute of the LUNs that belonged to the LUN group that was deleted is "Yes". The attribute can be recovered after the LUN is added to another LUN group and removed.
  • After the mapping view is deleted, the output of the "show lun_group general" command indicates that the "Is Add To Mapping View" attribute of the LUN groups that belonged to the mapping view that was deleted is "Yes". The attribute can be recovered after the LUN group is added to another mapping view and removed.


To delete host 1, run the following command.

developer:/>clear mapping_db_object type=host id=1
