This command can be used to stop a backup process. Before you can abort an account you must know its backup label. This label is displayed after you start the backup procedure. If you do not know the label, use zmbackupquery to find the label name.

To stop the restore process: The zmbackupabort -r interrupts an on going restore. The restore process is stopped after the current account is restored. The command displays message showing which accounts were not restored.
