Start a Vserver

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


The vserver start command starts data access on a Vserver.


-vserver <vserver> - Vserver

This specifies the name of the Vserver on which the data access is to be started. This operation is only supported on a data Vserver.

Note The name must be of 47 characters length or less.
[-foreground {true|false}] - Foreground Process

This specifies if the vserver start command should be executed in the foreground or background. If you do not enter this parameter, it is set to true , and the vserver start command is executed in the foreground.

[-force <true>] - Force Vserver Start

In case of a MetroCluster configuration or Vserver disaster recovery, by using this parameter you can start the Vserver that is either locked (which prevents any configuration changes) or its partner Vserver is operationally running. If you do not enter this parameter, it is set to false.


The following example starts data access on Vserver in the background.

cluster1::> vserver start -vserver -foreground false
