IPLing should work. If not, you can use the hardware service manager
(Start a service tool - Hardware service manager) to delete it.

If you hot-remove a disk (not replace), then an IPL is required to get
the disk out of the system.

It might be possible to reset the disk controller/IOP, but I've never
worked on systems large enough to do that kind of stuff, so I don't

Don't worry, Paul. I can't figure out how to tell the machine there's a
drive. It still thinks the old drive and serial number is in place (in
failed status). I can't figure out how to force it to refresh itself,
how to get the disks into "unconfigured" state.

Thanks, Chuck, that's exactly the right manual.

Gz, I'm becoming a hardware expert...
