You can provide data access from a Storage Virtual Machine (SVM) by starting the SVM. You can use the vserver start command to start an SVM.
When you start the SVM, the protocols that were stopped will start serving data. The protocol might have been stopped either independently by running commands such as vserver fcp stop or when the SVM was stopped.
You cannot start an SVM during a storage failover (SFO) if the resources of that SVM are part of an HA pair.
cluster1::> vserver start -vserver vs0.example.com [Job 21] Job succeeded: DONE
The following commands restart the SVM that failed to start:
cluster1::> vserver start vs1.example.com [Job 43] Job is queued: Vserver Start. Error: command failed: [Job 43] Job failed: Internal Error cluster1::> vserver show Admin Operational Root Vserver Type Subtype State State Volume Aggregate ------- ----- ------- ------- -------- ----------- ---------- cluster1 admin - - - - - cluster1-01 node - - - - - vs0.example.com data default running running root_vs0 aggr1 vs1.example.com data default starting stopped root_vs1 aggr1 cluster1::> vserver start vs1.example.com [Job 48] Job succeeded: DONE
The SVM is in the running state and starts serving data to clients.
When you start an SVM with Infinite Volume, its data policy is automatically re-imported and its JSON format is checked.
