Stopping disk sanitization

You can use the disk sanitize abort command to stop an ongoing sanitization process on one or more specified disks.

Step

  1. Enter the following command: disk sanitize abort disk_list

    This command is available through the nodeshell.

    If the specified disks are undergoing the disk formatting phase of sanitization, the process does not stop until the disk formatting is complete.

    Data ONTAP displays the message Sanitization abort initiated. After the process stops, Data ONTAP displays another message for each disk to inform you that sanitization is no longer in progress.
