Forcibly stopping the daemon

You can forcibly stop the daemon when you do not want to wait for all the commands to complete execution. After the request to forcibly stop the daemon is received, the SnapDrive for UNIX daemon cancels any commands that are in execution or in queue.

Before you begin

Ensure that you are logged in as a root user.


  1. Enter the following command to forcibly stop the daemon: snapdrived -force stop
    Note: When you forcibly stop the daemon, the state of your system might be undefined. This method is not recommended.
