hi Doc,

	There's no such command - once a device is created, it can only
be marked "dead" if you don't want to use it anymore.

	I found this post on the mailing list to be very informative. It
really drove it home.

Subject: Delete device

I added a second host to my tracker ( and also tried
adding its device, "dev2".  However, it appears I've made an error:
# mogadm --lib=/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5 --trackers= device
mogilestorage [1]: alive
                   used(G) free(G) total(G)
  dev1: alive      9.162   130.232 139.395
  dev2: alive      0.000   0.000   0.000 [2]: alive
                   used(G) free(G) total(G)
"dev2" should be on  How do I remove dev2?  "mogadm
device delete" doesn't seem to be a valid command.
