Could anyone please provide me what is the best way to migrate complete data from one Netapp filer to other Netapp.
After migration we are going to de-commission the migrated filer.
Note : Is that possible to migrate the data between two different model NetApps with different OS versions?
Source Netapp :
FAS2040 DATAONTOP : 8.0.5 HA Partner Setup
FAS2240-2 DATAONTOP : 8.2 HA Partner Setup

Are these 7 mode controllers?
you may want to try NDMPCOPY
You can migrate data from the source path to a destination path on the same storage system or to a different destination path on a remote host.

you could use vol copy command to do this.
Please see the guide "Upgrading a FAS2040 system in an HA pair by copying its volumes to a FAS22xx system in an HA pair" at this location for details.

The options listed above would work. You could also ask your NetApp sales contact about getting a demo / trial license of SnapMirror for the migration process. They are generally open to a short term license to allow for the ease of upgrading.
