CMMVC8943E: The command failed because the consistent image on an image mode copy is being provided by a FlashCopy map.


An attempt was made to remove an image mode volume or volume copy that is the target of an active (copying) FlashCopy mapping. While the FlashCopy mapping is copying, the data on the image mode mdisk might be different from the data on the image mode volume.

User Response

Wait for the FlashCopy operation to complete, then retry the command. Alternatively, specify the -discardimage parameter to force the delete operation, which might result in data loss.
