Hi, VSP G200 Storage system was rebooted due to a power failure. When powered up the system it was noticed that, All the LDEVs were in blocked state. When tried to restore the blocked LDEVs we get the below error. We cannot format the LDEVs as there is data in those LDEVs. Please help to unblock the LDEVs?

or maybe this one, keep in mind this is a article about formatting and deleting data:

I'd like to stress again, in this scenario it would be best to get support involved.
