You can pause in-progress decommissioning procedures. You can pause Storage Node decommissioning procedures only at specific stages.

Before you begin

About this task

You must pause decommissioning on a Storage Node before you can start a second maintenance procedure. After the other procedure is finished, you can resume decommissioning. When the decommissioning procedure reaches either of the following stages, you can pause it:


  1. Select Maintenance > Decommission.
    The Decommission page appears.
  2. At an appropriate stage of a decommissioning procedure, the Pause button enables. Click Pause to halt the procedure.
    Attention: Do not abort the decommissioning grid task, as this can leave the grid in an inconsistent state.
    The current stage is paused.
