This command pauses the mirror and unlocks the volume on the target system. You may wish to unlock the target volume in order to make a backup of the volume.
Warning: Any writes to the target volume while it is unlocked will be lost when the mirror is continued.
Note: If replacing the target volume, either break the mirror or delete the mirror in order to ensure a full resync of the data from the source volume to the new target volume when the new target volume is in place. See Replacing a Target for further information.
The Continue and Lock command will relock the target volume, perform a partial resync.
