Aborting a volume copy operation

If data is being copied between two storage systems, you can stop copying by executing the vol copy abort command on either storage system. If you start the volume copying operation from the system console, you can enter the vol copy abort command only through the rsh command. This is because you do not have access to the system prompt on the console during the copying.

Before you begin

To stop a specific volume copy operation, you need to specify the operation number. You can obtain the operation number from the vol copy status output.


  1. To stop a volume copy operation, enter the following command:vol copy abort [all | operation_number]
    operation_number is the specific volume copy operation to be stopped. Specify all to stop all operations.
    Attention: An incomplete volume copy operation leaves unusable data in the destination volume.
