Is there any way to clone a LUN without a flexclone license?

I've seen reference to a method that uses lun clone, but I think this has been removed in 8.2

Steps

1. Create a LUN by entering the following command:

lun create -s size -t lun type lun_path

Example

lun create -s 100g -t solaris /vol/vol1/lun0

2. Create a Snapshot copy of the volume containing the LUN to be cloned by entering the following command:

snap create volume_name snapshot_name

Example

snap create vol1 mysnap

3. Create the LUN clone by entering the following command:

lun clone create clone_lun_path -b parent_lun_path parent_snap

Example

lun clone create /vol/vol1/lun0_clone -b /vol/vol1/lun0 mysnap

I don't have a flex clone license and was curious if I'm out of luck with regard to making LUN clones.

Thanks

You can`t do that in c-mode. You need flexclone license
