Deleting restartable dump command backups

You can delete a restartable dump using the dump ID.


  1. To delete a restartable backup, enter the following command:
    backup terminate ID

    ID is the unique ID in the dump table that the backup status command displays.

    To prevent restartable backups from accumulating on a storage system and taking up unreasonable amounts of disk space, the dump command automatically checks the snap reserve every 10 minutes. If the snap reserve is over 100 percent, the oldest restartable backups are deleted until snap reserve usage drops below 100 percent or until there are no more restartable backups to delete.
