Cancel an SVM migration


If you need to cancel an SVM migration before it completes, you can use the vserver migrate abort command. You can cancel an SVM migration only when the operation is in the paused or failed state. You cannot cancel an SVM migration when the status is “cutover-started” or after cutover is complete. You cannot use the abort option when an SVM migration is in progress.

  1. Check the migration status:

    dest_cluster> vserver migrate show -vserver <vserver name>

  2. Cancel the migration:

    dest_cluster> vserver migrate abort -vserver <vserver name> Check the progress of the cancel operation:

    dest_cluster> vserver migrate show The migration status shows migrate-aborting while the cancel operation is in progress. When the cancel operation completes, the migration status shows nothing.
