start task and stop task Subcommands

The start task and stop task subcommands control the execution of maintenance tasks on a disk or RAID volume. The syntax of the commands are as follows:

raidconfig start task -t taskname [-d|-r]

raidconfig stop task -t taskname [-d|-r]

The available background tasks are shown in the following table.

Checks the validity of the RAID volume redundant data.
Initializes the RAID volume to write out the initial parity values. The initialization goes over the entire volume and initializes the parity data.
Copies and moves an online physical disk onto a hotspare or unconfigured good drive. The copy is performed while the volume is online. Once completed, the destination disk is added to the logical volume configuration while the original source disk is removed from it.
Regenerates the data of a single physical disk that is part of a logical volume with data redundancy. The physical disk is reconstructed from another physical disk and/or parity disks. A disk rebuild typically occurs after a disk replacement or repair.
Clears a physical disk by writing zeroes over the entire disk.

Note ‐ Not all devices support all tasks. To check the tasks a device supports, use the list subcommand and check the output under Startable tasks. If this field is blank, the device does not support any tasks.

The start task and stop task subcommands accept the options shown in the following table.
