[lustre-discuss] A quick question about reusing osts (lustre 2.5.3)

I was wondering because while looking at the man page for mkfs.lustre I saw the below option:
Used to initialize a target with the same --index as a previously used target if the old target was permanently lost for some reason (e.g. multiple disk failure or massive corruption). This avoids
having the target try to register as a new target with the MGS.

I know you'd need to keep the config files, directory structures, etc. How much of that info you need to keep around, I'm not 100% sure.
To get the MGS to accept it again, you may have to unmount and run tunefs.lustre --writeconf on all the targets.

I had a quick question about recreating osts... If I drain all the files off an ost can I just reformat it and have it added back into lustre, in essence reusing the same index? The server wouldn't change. Or would I have to preserve its configuration files?
