Putting a volume into restricted state

You use the vol restrict command to put a volume into restricted state, which makes it unavailable for read or write access by clients. You might want to do this if you want the volume to be the target of a volume copy or SnapMirror replication operation.

About this task

When you restrict a FlexVol volume, it relinquishes any unused space that has been allocated for it in its containing aggregate. If this space is allocated for another volume and then you bring the volume back online, this can result in an overcommitted aggregate.
