Stop snapshot group pending snapshot images

The stop pendingSnapImageCreation command cancels all of the pending snapshot images that are to be created on a snapshot or snapshot consistency group.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to any individual storage array, including the E2700, E5600, E2800, E5700, EF600 and EF300 arrays, as long as all SMcli packages are installed.

Roles

To execute this command on an E2800, E5700, EF600, or EF300 storage array, you must have the Storage Admin role.

Context

If the snapshot group does not have any pending snapshot images, the firmware displays an error message and does not run the command. You can run this command on a snapshot group or a snapshot consistency group.
