Copy LUN to LUN

How do we copy a LUN to another LUN?

Re: Copy LUN to LUN

ndmpcopy?

Re: Copy LUN to LUN

Does it applicable for LUN copy? Or only volume level? I saw the manual for ndmpcopy and looks like it used to copy from different storage. What about vol copy? And if ndmp copy works, what is the correct step would be?

Re: Copy LUN to LUN

Yes, ndmpcopy can copy single file. It can be used within the same system or between two different systems. Vol copy copies the whole volume with all content. It can be used to copy single file.

ndmpcopy /vol/vol1/lun1 /vol/vol2/lun2

thanks :-)

Re: Copy LUN to LUN

What are you actually trying to achieve?

ndmpcopy is only one way to copy a LUN, but snapmirror or even lun cloning for temporary copies might be better in your case.

Re: Copy LUN to LUN

Need to copy to a new LUN as previous LUN has been created in incorrect volume. So need to create a new volume, and then copy the LUN.

Re: Copy LUN to LUN

Clear. Then ndmpcopy or qtree snapmirror, if you have the license, is the way to go.

Re: Copy LUN to LUN

Question on ndmpcopy..

Do I need to create a new LUN before I perform ndmpcopy or will ndmpcopy will create a new LUN when I perform ndmpcopy?
