I've added several disks to an aggregate. I'd like to reallocate existing volumes and snapshots of those volumes across the new disks in the aggregate. Is there any way to reallocate a volume and its snapshots across the new disks in an aggregate?
Everything I've come across seems to indicate that one must delete all volume snapshots before reallocating a volume across the new disks is possible. I hope there is a way to reallocate volumes without deleting their snaps! :-)
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

To redistribute data across disks you should use "reallocate -A". Simple reallocate will not touch snapshot data.
You should consider removeing aggregate snapshots, as reallocation will cause "growth" of them.
