I'm a newbie to all the Netapp stuff so bare with me, I've got an old windows file server and want to move the data to my Netapp i want to keep the name of the windows server so user don't need to be remapped to the netapp. I was going to create a vfiler, then copy the data from the windows server using robo copy and then rename the vfiler, is this possible if so how do i do it?
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

That works...the same as a physical controller or vFiler. Create the vFiler and join to the domain, for example "servername-new" then robocopy the data... when ready to cutover, decommission the windows server, run "vfiler rename" then 'cifs terminate' and 'cifs setup' to rejoin the domain under the original server name or create a cifs netbios alias.
