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
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.
