Vol move to new aggregate

Currently Being Moderated

Hi everybody

I was wondering if i can use the vol move command (DOT8) for doing the following task:

We need to move destination snapmirror volume to a new SATA aggregate (on the same controller)

Some volumes contain snapmirror of lun and snapmirror of CIFS volume

I've read that lun move is only supported for LUN

but I do not care about "no disruptive" move, as there are read only snapmirror volumes

Does anybody already use this method for moving volume?


Thanks for your reply

    What would be the best method to move destinations snapmirror volume to a new aggregate

    vol move

    vol copy

    may be even aggr copy (as all volumes in the source aggregate must be move)

    or snapmirror the old destination to the new one

    your help or advice are welcome

      If no cifs shares or nfs exports it may work... need to test out vol move on a mirror volume (but may not work) in a vsim or the lab.


      Typically, I cascade the snapmirror then update the new target from the original source and release snapshots.  Cascaded mirrors work very well and we use them often to move mirror targets.  Since all snapshots move with the cascade, you can update from the original source volume.
