Cannot drop asm disk

select header_status, path, name from v$asm_disk;

HEADER_STATUS PATH                           NAME

------------ ------------------------------ --------------------
MEMBER /dev/rdsk/c6t4d0s6 MEMBER /dev/rdsk/c5t1d0s6 DATA_0000 MEMBER /dev/rdsk/c5t1d2s6 ORAFLASH_0000

Notice that /dev/rdsk/c6t4d0s6 does not have a name.

Question is, how do I drop this disk from the diskgroup?

I cannot use
alter diskgroup data drop disk '/dev/rdsk/c6t4d0s6';

That is incorrect syntax. I need the name.

Any ideas?

PS: I tried (guessed) with name data_0001 but it gives error saying data_0001 not part of diskgroup DATA.
