Is there a way to remove a LUN to shrink the size of a Storage Domain in RHEV?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I have used the wrong LUN to extend a storage domain. How can I shrink or reduce a Storage Domain in RHEV?
  • My storage admin has requested that I give back a LUN used for a storage domain in RHEV. How can I do that without losing my VM data?
  • Are there any considerations I should take into account when creating Storage Domains so I can be sure they can be shrunk in the future?
