You can block a storage volume to prevent it from being used when new CVDs or base layers are being created.

Blocking a storage volume is useful when the volume reaches a volume capacity threshold or to stop populating it with new CVDs or base layers. Blocking a volume does not affect access or updates to existing CVDs and base layers on the volume.


You cannot move a CVD or a base layer to a blocked volume. You can move a CVD or a base layer from a blocked volume.


In the Horizon Mirage Web Manager, click the Volumes tab.


Select the required volume and click Block.


Click OK to confirm.

The Volume Status column in the Volumes window shows Blocked.
