ndctl-destroy-namespace — destroy the given namespace(s)

Synopsis

ndctl destroy-namespace <namespace> [<options>]

Description

A REGION, after resolving DPA aliasing and LABEL specified boundaries, surfaces one or more "namespace" devices. The arrival of a "namespace" device currently triggers either the nd_blk or nd_pmem driver to load and register a disk/block device.

Options

<namespace>

A namespaceX.Y device name. The keyword all can be specified to carry out the operation on every namespace in the system, optionally filtered by region (see --region=option)

-r, --region=

A regionX device name, or a region id number. The keyword all can be specified to carry out the operation on every region in the system, optionally filtered by bus id (see --bus= option).

-b, --bus=

Enforce that the operation only be carried on devices that are attached to the given bus. Where bus can be a provider name or a bus id number.

-v, --verbose

Emit debug messages for the namespace operation

-f, --force

Unless this option is specified the destroy namespace operation will fail if the namespace is presently active. Specifying --force causes the namespace to be disabled before the operation is attempted.
