Unlocking a vserv

Hi All,


First time posting so bear with me,

I have a FAS2620 and have created a CIFS vserver ( call it data2) and it has been initializing all weekend. Tried to delete it (to start over) and it says it is locked and can only be unlocked from CLI. Tried from CLI:


vserver unlock -vserver data2 

It said unlock was not a good option

Also:  vserver unlock -vserver data2 -force true

Said -force was not a good option.


Any ideas?

No. I will try that. I assume you do that, then on the next line run the vserver unlock command

Re: Unlocking a vserv

That worked. Thank you very much.

No problem.    Just  a quick blurb,  if you're reading the ONTAP docs,  most will have something like "This command is available to <foo > at the <bar > privilege level."
