To have an option to remove the disk pairing during VMRM DR Rehearsal cleanup so the disks can be re-used/re-purposed

- The client has a policy of conducting a Planned DR Test once a year using the GDR. They have not used the DR Rehearsal feature before.
- Now, with VMRM 1.5, they want to utilize the DR Rehearsal feature especially on the new LPARs that will be created in their servers, to validate that the new LPARs can be managed by ksys successfully.
- Their concern is that they have a limited storage capacity, so keeping the 3rd copy after the DR Rehearsal is not practical for them.
- Due to limited storage, the DR Rehearsal plan is to choose the LPARs that will be tested, place them in a workgroup, then do DR Rehearsal on that workgroup. In this way, they can re-purpose/re-use the same LUNs on to different LPARs and do the DR Rehearsal by batch (can be 1 or 2 LPARs depending on the disk storage capacity requirement).

    What is the storage here? If it is storwize family, tertiary disks can be created with clone in which case disks relationships would be deleted after clone is completed.
