Aborting a project

You might want to abort a running project, for example, when the performance of the controller or the cluster is impacted. You can abort a running project from the Dashboard.

You must consider the following before aborting projects that transition volumes with SnapMirror relationships:

  • If both projects have been started, aborting one project aborts the associated project.

    For example, if you abort a primary project, the secondary project is also aborted.

  • If the abort operation fails on the current project, the associated project is not aborted.

  • If only one active project is aborted, the start operation on the associated project fails.

  • When you abort a primary project, the copy operation from the 7-Mode primary volume to the ONTAP secondary volume is not aborted.

    Only the copy operation from the 7-Mode primary volume to the corresponding ONTAP primary volume is aborted.

Note If the 7-Mode project is aborted, the only option is to delete the project. It is not possible to resume or restart the project after it is aborted.
Steps
  1. From the Dashboard, select the project that you want to abort.

  2. Click Abort.

  3. From the cluster, delete the ONTAP volumes that were created as part of the transition.

  4. From the 7-Mode system, release the SnapMirror relationships to the ONTAP volumes.

  5. If you abort a volume SnapMirror relationship, you must do the following:

    1. Break and delete the SnapMirror relationship between the 7-Mode primary volumes and ONTAP secondary volumes.

    2. From the primary 7-Mode system, release the SnapMirror relationships to the ONTAP secondary volumes.
