Quiescing a reallocation scan

You can quiesce (temporarily stop) a reallocation scan that is in progress and restart it later. For example, if you want to back up a LUN or an aggregate but a scan is already in progress, you can quiesce the scan.

About this task

When you restart a file, LUN, or volume reallocation scan, the scan restarts from the beginning of the reallocation process. An aggregate reallocation scan restarts from where it stopped.


  1. Enter the following command:
    reallocate quiesce pathname | aggr_name

    pathname is the path to the LUN, file, or volume, and aggr_name is the name of the aggregate for which you want to quiesce the reallocation scan.
