tsm jobs

You can use the tsm jobs commands to list, reconnect to and cancel jobs.

tsm jobs cancel

Cancel a job on the server. Any job can be cancelled before it starts running (when queued). Only certain jobs can be cancelled when they are already running: Clean-up, Decommission File Store, Generate Backup, Restart Server, Start Server. For more information about cancelling jobs, see Cancel TSM Jobs.

tsm jobs list [--status <status>] [global options]
