I tried to datamotion a vfiler from a FAS3160 (ONTAP 7.3.4) to a FAS3240 (ONTAP 220.127.116.11) using NetApp Management Console 3.0.1 (dfm 4.0.1) and received the message below from datamotion. Can anyone explain why this is not allowed? Datamotion between FAS3070 and FAS3160 is working OK. I opened a tech support case and was told datamotion does not support the FAS3240.
Thanks in advance,

This is a known issue that someone else posted about on the forum (I think a 3270). Open a support case and they should give you the test point to allow the 3240 to work with Data Motion. The person who had the 3270 issue reported that support gave them the workaround which we can't post in the forum.
Here is the thread where the 3270 was unable to data motion (same issue) and fletch2007 reported that support gave him the workaround. http://communities.netapp.com/message/55005#55005
