If you change the SnapDrive for UNIX configuration file, you must stop and restart the daemon. You can stop the daemon nonforcibly or forcibly.
Nonforcibly stopping the daemon
If your SnapDrive for UNIX configuration file is changed, you must stop the daemon for the configuration file changes to take effect. After the daemon is stopped and restarted, the changes in the configuration file take effect. Nonforcibly stopping the daemon, allows all queued commands to complete. After the stop request is received, no new commands are executed.
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.
