Error Code details
Severity: n/a 
Component: Volume Manager 
Volume %s is incomplete

This message is shown when you try to stop an instant snapshot that is incomplete. The system does not let you stop incomplete snapshots because the snapshot volume depends on the source volume for data, and the instant snapshot functionality requires the source volume to push copy-on-write I/Os completely to the snapshot volume.

For full size snapshots:

  1. Initiate or resume snapshot synchronization. Enter:

    vxsnap -g dg syncstart snapvol

  2. Stop the snapshot volume. Enter:

    vxsnap -g dg stop snapvol

For space-optimized snapshots:

  • Do not stop a space-optimized volume, it makes the snapshot volume unusable.
  • If you need to remove snapshot relationships, enter:

    vxsnap -g
    dg dis snapvol

    Then delete the volume. Enter:

    vxedit -g dg -rf rm snapvol
