Migrate snapvault primary to new aggregate - without breaking protection manager

Hello,

 

We need to migrate a volume to a new aggregate (as its current aggregate is nearing capacity).

 

How can we do this without losing protection manager snapvault and backups (or more accurately, restore) capability - and without rebaselining?

 

Regards,

 

Darrin.

Protection Manager 5 with 7dot? There is a wizard in the Protection Manager GUI to move secondary volumes.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for your reply, but unfortunately, we need to move the primary and not the secondary volume!

Hi there,

 

Thanks for your reply. I'm pretty dissapointed if this is such a complex task. Surely people need to move primary volumes from time to time?

 

Anyway, I'll try my luck with a support call.

 

Thanks again,
