Moving the Snapmirror target volume

Hello,

I have a SnapMirror source/destination pair that are configured between 2 filers.  The containing aggregate is nearly full on the destination and I want to move the destination vol to another aggregate but without having to resync the entire snapmirror.

Is there an easy way to do this, and preserve the snapmirror sync status ?

Moving the Snapmirror target volume

It's fairly straightforward: initialize a new relationship from the current destination to a new destination. When complete, quiesece and break the new snapmirror relationship and the original snapmirror relationship. Edit the /etc/snapmirror.conf file to reflect the original source and the new destination, issue `snapmirror resync filer1:orig_source filer2:new_destination` from the destination CLI and it will find the latest common snapshot, ask for confirmation and resync.
