Syntax

cgSnapImage="snapImageName"

Parameters

Parameter Description
cgSnapVolume The name of the consistency group snapshot volume that you want to resume. Enclose the name of the consistency group snapshot volume in double quotation marks (" ") inside square brackets ([ ]).
cgSnapImage

The name of the snapshot image in a consistency group that you are restarting. The name of a snapshot image is comprised of two parts:

  • The name of the consistency group
  • An identifier for the snapshot image in the consistency group

The identifier for the snapshot image can be one of these:

  • An integer value that is the sequence number of the snapshot in the consistency group.
  • NEWEST - Use this option when you want to show the latest snapshot image created in the consistency group.
  • OLDEST - Use this option when you want to show the earliest snapshot image created in the consistency group.

Enclose the snapshot image name in double quotation marks (" ").

Notes

The name of a snapshot image has two parts separated by a colon (:):

For example, if you want to restart a copy-on-write operation for snapshot image 12345, which is in snapshot consistency group snapgroup1 in a consistency group snapshot volume that has the name snapVol1, you would use this command:

resume cgSnapVolume ["snapVol1"] cgSnapImage=["snapgroup1:12345"]
