Pause and resume decommission process for Storage Nodes

Contributors netapp-lhalbert netapp-madkat netapp-perveilerk

If you need to perform a second maintenance procedure, you can pause the decommission procedure for a Storage Node during certain stages. After the other procedure is finished, you can resume decommissioning.

Note The Pause button is enabled only when the ILM evaluation or erasure-coded data decommissioning stages are reached; however, ILM evaluation (data migration) will continue to run in the background.
