Volume move fails after stopping volume clone split

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9.6
  • ONTAP 9.7


  • After stopping a volume clone split operation, volume move start commands fail:
Cluster01::> volume move start -volume test_clone -destination-aggregate aggr1
Error: command failed: Cannot move volume "test_clone" in Vserver "svm1". Reason: The volume is undergoing a FlexClone split operation. Use the "volume clone split show" command to monitor the split operation for completion, or use the "volume clone split stop" command to stop the split operation.
  • The volume clone split status command shows all zeroes:
Cluster01::> volume clone split status
Vserver   FlexClone     Scanned  Updated  % Complete
--------- ------------- -------- -------- ----------
svm1      test_clone    0        0        0
