Anyone seen this error?
I'm doing a vFiler migrate via NMC 3.0.2 from a 3170 running 7.3.3 to a 3270 running 18.104.22.168P2
The error occurs during cutover:
right after a successful "putting vfiler unit 'xyz-vfiler' in 'migrate prepare' mode"
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

Yes I've seen this error. This error "vfiler has other references "means that your vfiler is being currently accessed at other places as well. Most common one is you have a vfiler context opened at some console and trying a cutover. This is not allowed.
Another but less common possibility is your vfiler is being accessed for by some ZAPI for some operation.
So close any vfiler context opened for that vfiler unit and re-try cutover. It will work.

Yes, did a "vfiler context vfiler0" (eventhough the context prompt did not show it was in the problem vfiler) and it succeeded
