mc admin service

Description

The mc admin service command can restart or stop MinIO servers.

mc admin service affects all MinIO servers in the target deployment at the same time. The command interrupts in-progress API operations on the MinIO deployment. Exercise caution before issuing an update command on production environments.

Use mc admin on MinIO Deployments Only

MinIO does not support using mc admin commands with other S3-compatible services, regardless of their claimed compatibility with MinIO deployments.
