You can use the vserver stop command to stop a Storage Virtual Machine (SVM) when you want to troubleshoot or delete the SVM, or stop data access from the SVM.
You cannot stop an SVM during a storage failover (SFO) if the resources of that SVM are part of an HA pair.
When you stop the SVM, other operations such as SnapMirror data transfers continue to run as per the schedule.
The SVM administrator cannot log in to the SVM when the SVM is in the stopped state.
