How to clean up failed volume move records in ONTAP

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • Volume move


  • A volume move job was aborted but is still visible in the volume move show command output:

::> volume move show
Vserver   Volume     State   Move Phase Percent-Complete Time-To-Complete
--------- ---------- ------- ---------- ---------------- ----------------
vs0       vol_c0066  failed  failed     -                -

::> volume move show
Vserver   Volume     State   Move Phase Percent-Complete Time-To-Complete
--------- ---------- ------- ---------- ---------------- ----------------
vs0       vol_d0076     -          -            -                -

  • The state is failed or shows blank and the administrator wants to remove the entry.

Additional Information

  • The false volume move show entries can get auto-deleted if the node goes through an ONTAP upgrade.
