Stopping SVMs

Contributors netapp-ivanad

You can use System Manager to stop a storage virtual machine (SVM) if you want to troubleshoot any issue with the SVM, delete the SVM, or stop data access from the SVM.

Before you begin

All the clients connected to the SVM must be disconnected.

Note

If any clients are connected to the SVM when you stop it, data loss might occur.

About this task
  • You cannot stop SVMs during storage failover (SFO).

  • When you stop the SVM, an SVM administrator cannot log in to the SVM.

Steps
  1. Click Storage > SVMs.

  2. Select the SVM that you want to stop, and then click Stop.

Results

The SVM stops serving data to clients.
