PUT /managementServer/quiesce

Use this PUT method to stop quiescing the management server and resume Lenovo XClarity Administrator and to cancel a backup operation.

Typically, you do not need to use this request, as both the backup and restore operations automatically quiesce the management server, run the operation, and then resume the management server.

If you use this request when a backup is being created, the backup operation is canceled.

Attention: Do not use this request during a restore operation. If you use this request when a backup is being restored, the restore operation is stopped; however, any that data restored up until that moment is not rolled back. Therefore, data might be lost, and both the management server and the virtual appliance itself might not behave correctly. If network settings were restored, the management server might start using the restored IP address as well.
Note: This API requires Lenovo XClarity Administrator v2.2.0 or later.


Authentication is not required.
