Sure, already done.
When the clone is initiated a number of tasks begin:
Once this is complete a 64bit upgrade begins:
[###:wafl.scan.start:info]: Starting 64bit upgrade on volume ###
Depending on the size of the volume the time to complete the task varies.
I have noticed that DOT will only do one upgrade at a time. i.e. I created a number of clones but each upgrade waits until the previous has finished – The end result is a 64bit flexclone of a 32bit parent.
Lastly, the flexclone seems to use a little more space than a native 64bit to 64bit clone, or this is what I am assuming as space within the aggr does reduce more than expected with a flexclone.

So you mean that it immediately starts 32 to 64 bit conversion for clone? Good to know. In this case it is expected that it will consume more space, as more data will change compared with native clone.

I have a pretty large volume (3.4T and 127Mio inodes in use), this really takes a long time:
First the scanner:
Tue Jun 19 12:39:56 CEST [diamond:wafl.scan.start:info]: Starting splitting of the inofile on volume xxxVSM64.
Tue Jun 19 12:39:56 CEST [diamond:wafl.split.inofile.scan.complete:info]: Volume xxxVSM64 Split inofile scan completed.
Tue Jun 19 12:39:56 CEST [diamond:wafl.scan.start:info]: Starting 64bit space qualifying on volume xxxVSM64.
Wed Jun 20 00:19:33 CEST [diamond:wafl.scan.64bit.space.done:notice]: The 64-bit space qualifying scanner has completed running on Volume xxxVSM64.
After this, the volume is 64bit when you look at vol status
now the conversion:
Wed Jun 20 00:44:33 CEST [diamond:wafl.64bit.upgrade.start:notice]: The 64-bit upgrade has started on volume xxxVSM64.
Wed Jun 20 00:44:33 CEST [diamond:wafl.scan.64bit.upgrade.start:notice]: The 64-bit upgrade scanner has started running on volume xxxVSM64.
Wed Jun 20 00:44:33 CEST [diamond:wafl.scan.start:info]: Starting 64bit upgrade on volume xxxVSM64.
Right now, after 11 hours of conversion, 97 of 157 mio blocks are converted, so it will finish in 3-5 hours I suppose.
