storage aggregate plex offline

Offline a plex

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.


The storage aggregate plex offline command takes the specified plex offline. The aggregate specified with the -aggregate parameter must be a mirrored aggregate and both plexes must be online. Prior to taking a plex offline, the system will flush all internally-buffered data associated with the plex and create a snapshot that is written out to both plexes. The snapshot allows for efficient resynchronization when the plex is subsequently brought back online.


-aggregate <aggregate name> - Aggregate
Name of an existing aggregate which contains the plex specified with the -plex parameter.
-plex <text> - Plex
Name of a plex which belongs to the aggregate specified with the -aggregate parameter.


The following example takes plex0 of aggregate aggr1 offline:

cluster1::> storage aggregate plex offline -aggregate aggr1 -plex plex0
