About this task

This task unlocks the pool, restoring the ability to perform the following operations:

  • Writing into the pool's datasets
  • Resizing the pool's datasets
  • Restoring a dataset from a snapshot
  • Creating datasets in the pool

Analyzing the causes to the pool lock

The pool is usually automatically locked upon depleting its capacity settings. In such a case, prior to the pool unlock - in order to prevent it from auto-locking again - it is advised to increase its capacity (see Deleting a pool for resizing instructions).
