ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

vserver unlock

Unlock Vserver configuration

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


The vserver unlock command revokes the administrative lock on the Vserver configuration. When a Vserver is unlocked, changes to the configuration are permitted. The unlock operation fails if the Vserver is not locked by the administrator or if it is locked by internal applications. If the Vserver fails to unlock due to an error condition, you can use the -force option.


-vserver <vserver> - Vserver

The name of the Vserver that has to be unlocked.

[-force <true>] - Force Unlock

This option is specified to unlock the Vserver when the Vserver fails to unlock due to an error condition.


The following example illustrates how to unlock the Vserver named vs123.example.com, forcefully :

cluster1::> vserver unlock -vserver vs1.example.com -force true
