How long have you let the box sit? I had to offline the slog device, and it took quite a while for it to come back to life after removing the device (4-5 minutes). It's a painful process, which is why ever since I've used mirrored slog devices.

The slog started showing errors, so I decided to remove it. I have tried to offline it with the same result. Any ideas? I have offlined the cache device, which happened immediately, but both offline/remove of the slog hangs and makes the box unusable. If I have a ssh connection open, it will allow me to run commands like top and dmesg, but if I try to open a new connection, it hangs after displaying 'Last login: .....' I have mounted shares from the server, and I can access files (read, but not write) on them without any problems. The only thing that seems to work is powercycling the machine. Any ideas out there?
