Aborting a grid task

You can abort an active grid task while it is running.

Before you begin

About this task

Not all grid tasks can be aborted. To determine whether a grid task can be aborted, follow the guidelines in the procedures where the grid task is discussed.

Attention: Do not abort an active grid task unless you are instructed to do so by technical support or by the specific instructions for another procedure.

Aborting an active grid task causes it to leave affected entities in a reliable state. This might require you to roll back some actions or reset device states. The result is that the grid task can remain on the Active table with a status of Aborting for an extended period of time. When the programmed abort process is complete, the grid task moves to the Historical table.

Steps

  1. Select Grid.
  2. Select primary Admin Node > CMN > Grid Tasks.
  3. Click Configuration > Main .
  4. Under Actions, select Pause for the Active grid task you want to abort.
  5. Click Apply Changes.
    When the page refreshes, the status of the grid task changes to Paused.
  6. Under Actions, select Abort.
  7. Click Apply Changes.
    While the task is aborting, it remains in the Active table with a status of Aborting. When the operation is complete, the grid task moves to the Historical table with its status changed to Aborted. You can confirm this by returning to primary Admin Node > CMN > Grid Tasks > Overview > Main.

After you finish

You can run an aborted grid task again by resubmitting it with a Task Signed Text Block.
