ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

volume restrict

Restrict an existing volume

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


The volume restrict command puts the volume in restricted state. If the volume is online, then it will be made unavailable for data access as described under volume offline .


-vserver <vserver name> - Vserver Name

This specifies the name of the Vserver from which the volume is to be restricted. If only one data Vserver exists, you do not need to specify this parameter.

-volume <volume name> - Volume Name

This specifies the name of the volume that is to be restricted.

[-foreground {true|false}] - Foreground Process

This specifies whether the operation runs in the foreground. The default setting is true (the operation runs in the foreground). When set to true, the command will not return until the operation completes. This parameter applies only to FlexGroups. For FlexVol volumes, the command always runs in the foreground.


The following example restricts a volume named vol1:

cluster1::> volume restrict vol1
Volume 'vs1:vol1' is now restricted.
