Delete host port

The delete hostPort command deletes a host port identification.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to an individual DE2000H, DE4000H, DE4000F, DE6000H, or DE6000F storage array.


To execute this command on an storage array, you must have the Storage Admin role.


The identification is a software value that represents the physical host port to the controller. By deleting the identification, the controller no longer recognizes instructions and data from the host port.
Important: This command does not work in an iSCSI environment, where the host ports are considered initiators.


delete hostPort [hostPortName]


Parameter Description
hostPort The name of the host port that you want to delete. Enclose the name of the host port in square brackets ([ ]). If the host port name contains special characters or consists only of numbers, you also must enclose the name in double quotation marks (" ") inside square brackets.


A host port is a physical connection on a host adapter that resides within a host computer. A host port provides a host access to the volumes in a storage array.
