Can anyone suggest the best way to move serveral volumes from one aggr to another in order to resize my orginal aggr. I'm riunning 7-Mode 8.2.4 and both aggrs would be on the same controller.
To me it looks like the volmove command...?
My volumes are also NSF CFIS shares. Is it a case of stopping this sharing before using volmove...?
I obviously want to do this non-disruptively !
Thanks for any advice or experiences of a similar scenario.

Cifs terminate will impact all shares on that box. Its better to create volume on the destination aggregate and do snapmirror replication. Take cutover permission from your share owners and do final update snapmirror transfer and allocate new volume to clients. This is the best way to follow. Everyone follows the same.

For example your actual cifs share name is Share1 /vol/vol1 chich is on aggr1.
You have one more aggregate aggr2. Now u want to move volume to aggr2.
Please follow the below steps.
create a volume on aggr2 with same size as vol1 on aggr1.
fas02: vol create vol2 aggr2 100g
fas02: snapmirror initialize -S fas01:/vol1 fas02:vol2
take cutover from client.
perform final update snapmirror transfer.
snapmirror update vol2
snapmirror quiesce vol2
snapmirror break vol2
now delete the productions share. before that notedown all the share level permissions on that share.
cifs shares -delete share1
cifs shares -add share1 /vol/vol2
provide share level permissions using cifs access commands.
inform clients to access the share again. maintain 7 days cooling period and destroy the old volume again.
