Stop pending snapshot images on consistency group

Contributors netapp-driley

The stop consistencyGroup pendingSnapImageCreation command stops all of the pending snapshot images that are to be created on a 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.


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


If the snapshot consistency group does not have any pending snapshot images, the storage management software displays an error message and does not run the command.


stop consistencyGroup [consistencyGroupName]pendingSnapImageCreation

The name of the consistency group for which you want to stop any pending snapshot operation. Enclose the name of the consistency group in square brackets ([ ]). If the consistency group name has special characters or numbers, you must enclose the consistency group name in double quotation marks (" ") inside square brackets.
