Hello, I am trying to delete a disk from a StoragePool:User's image

First, I execute this command, which also completes successfully:

Set-PhysicalDisk -FriendlyName 'physicaldisk-1' -Usage Retired

But then I try

Remove-PhysicalDisk physicaldisk-1

Do I get the error message

Remove-PhysicalDisk : The argument transformation for the "StoragePool" parameter cannot be processed. The value "physicaldisk-1" cannot be converted to type "Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance" type. Error: "The specified argument is outside the valid range of values. Parameter name: className"

I wanted to try to erase the disk via the serialnumber or uniqueid



Get-PhysicalDisk | select-object serialnumber, uniqueid, friendlyname, operationstatus, healthstatus

but there I only get this info:

serialnumber:
uniqueid:
friendlyname: PhysicalDisk-1
operationstatus:
HealthStatus: Warning

Do you have any ideas what else I could do?

I have already restarted several times.
Reset-PhysicalDisk fails with "Reset-physicaldisk : Failed".

Thanks a lot for your help!

    Hi,

    Please see if passing a CimInstance to Remove-PhysicalDisk works.

    Get-PhysicalDisk physicaldisk-1 | Remove-PhysicalDisk
    

    Best Regards,
