How to delete a Volume Pool on an OpenStorage disk Pool that includes a space in name

I acidentally creaated a storage unit on a data domain with a space fwg5_sdc_6800_t _su  

So I created a new storage unit on DD fwg5_sdc_6800_t_su   with space removed

Next, I added second volume to disk Pool fwg5_sdc_6800_t_dp

I ran command nbdevquery -listdv -U -stype DataDomain -dp fwg5_sdc_6800_t_dp

Disk Pool Name      : fwg5_sdc_6800_t_dp
Disk Type           : DataDomain
Disk Volume Name    : fwg5_sdc_6800_t _su    (Has space)
Disk Media ID       : @aaabV
Total Capacity (GB) : 173202.39
Free Space (GB)     : 157400.19
Use%                : 9
Status              : UP
Flag                : ReadOnWrite
Flag                : AdminUp
Flag                : InternalUp
Num Read Mounts     : 0
Num Write Mounts    : 1
Cur Read Streams    : 0
Cur Write Streams   : 0
Num Repl Sources    : 0
Num Repl Targets    : 0

Disk Pool Name      : fwg5_sdc_6800_t_dp
Disk Type           : DataDomain
Disk Volume Name    : fwg5_sdc_6800_t_su
Disk Media ID       : @aaac9
Total Capacity (GB) : 173202.39
Free Space (GB)     : 157400.19
Use%                : 9
Status              : UP
Flag                : ReadOnWrite

Num Read Mounts     : 0
Num Write Mounts    : 1
Cur Read Streams    : 0
Cur Write Streams   : 2
Num Repl Sources    : 0
Num Repl Targets    : 0

Next I down DP and try to run following command

nbdevconfig -deletedv -stype DataDomain -dp fwg5_sdc_6800_t_dp -dv  fwg5_sdc_6800_t _su  has space

getting error   Invalid option (_su)

Question:  How to I delete a volume that contains a space.

If I can't I will have to expore all copy 2 to the STU > DP remove reference o STU and DP and delete them and recreate

Trying to save the 3-4 hours of work

Thanks

Re: How to delete a Volume Pool on an OpenStorage disk Pool that includes a space in name

Which OS on the media server where you are running the command?

Are there any unexpired backups associated with the dv (Disk Media ID : @aaabV)?

You need to use quotes - but I really think you should get rid of the pool. Space in names is just as bad mojo as it ever can be.

nbdevconfig -deletedv -stype DataDomain -dp fwg5_sdc_6800_t_dp -dv  "fwg5_sdc_6800_t _su  has space "

I tried using the quotes

nbdevconfig -deletedv -stype DataDomain -dp fwg5_sdc_6800_t_dp -dv  "fwg5_sdc_6800_t _su"
DSM has encountered an invalid state for the following object: fwg5_sdc_6800_t _su
failed to delete disk volume, invalid command parameter

Mould is growing on my NBU skills - is the disk pool down in Netbackup ?

e.g. : nbdevconfig -changestate -stype DataDomain -dp {pool name} -state DOWN

The error you are seeing is different - it now says "invalid state"

Yes I thought I expired all images associated with @aaabV

Found a couple of images I missed

I expired them and down Disk pool and was successful in removing Disk Volume from disk Pool

Thansk for both of your help
