For error like "The storage pool will not be used but cleanup is needed"  you should check
global settings "global.clenup.interaval " ,For quick cleanup you can set it to 300ms and
check  parameter related to cleanup like storage.template.cleanup.enable  , storage cleanup
enabled etc. If global settings are properly tuned I don't think  any database modifications

->cloud.volume  stores volumes information , if you are not able to delete storage because"volume
still exist on the storage" change the volume state and delete.

-> storage_pool, storage_pool_view  for primary storage

Thanks for suggestion, which I will try.

Btw, I saw a lead as:
Which says :

when I've had issues deleting primary storages in the past, I've ended up having to delete
volumes that were still associated with the datastore from the cloud.volumes table.

Is cloud.volumes the mysql table, where all the primary/secondary storage setups are stored?
Or what is the exact db.tablename which stores the primary/secondary storage setups?

I would suggest add you new  primary storage ,migrate volumes  from old storage to new storage
and  then remove ur old primary storage after enabling  maintenance mode.

Subject: How to change primary storage

Hello All,

 I installed CS 4.1 on ubuntu, with primary storage in /export/aa and secondary storage in
/export/bb, both in the same hard disk as the management server of CS 4.1. The Ip of the server
is  http://XXX.XXX.1.5.

 Recently, I configured the My Book Live Device, to the IP of http://XXX.XXX.1.20. I am able
to mount this device to linux dir and view files on it.

 The CS 4.1 was installed before mounting this external My Book Live Device.

Now I want to change the primary storage of the IP address from http://XXX.XXX.1.5 to http://XXX.XXX.1.20.
Also, I need to change the primary storage directory.

 Can, anybody provide insights, on which Mysql table, should I update for CS 4.1 setup. Or
is there a procedure, to change the primary storage settings via the CS 4.1 web interface

Thanks in advance.
