Aborting a mirror transfer

You can abort a volume replication operation before the data transfer is complete. You can abort a scheduled update, a manual update, or an initial data transfer.


  1. Expand the Storage Virtual Machines hierarchy in the left navigation pane.
  2. In the navigation pane, select the Storage Virtual Machine (SVM) that contains the destination volume and click Protection.
  3. Select the relationship for which you want to stop the data transfer, and click Operations > Abort.
  4. Select the Yes, I want to abort the transfer check box to confirm the operation.
  5. Optional: Select the Keep any partially transferred data check box to retain the data that is already transferred to the destination volume.
  6. Click Abort.
  7. Optional: If you are aborting data transfers on an Infinite Volume, click Run in Background to run the operation in the background.
    It takes longer to abort data transfers of Infinite Volumes than of a FlexVol volume.

    The transfer status is displayed as "Aborting" until the operation is complete and displayed as "Idle" after the operation is complete.
