Volume Copy Procedure?

Thanks Eugene for your quick response.

Would you please also advice the pro/cons between ndmpcopy and volume copy?

Cheers

Volume Copy Procedure?

Henry -

Vol copy is block for block, and probably faster.

ndmpcopy can do incrementals, which may be of help.

Most times I ask customers to do data migration using snapmirror local - even on a demo license key.

( Your sales rep can get you keys ...)


I hope this response has been helpful to you.

If 8.0 and San you can vol move too.  Or motor, vol copy and ndmpcopy like Eugene mentioned.

Re: Volume Copy Procedure?

VOL COPY WITHIN THE SAME FILER

-----------------------------

1. Create destination volume of sufficient size "vol create *name* *aggregate* *size" eg 'vol create testvol aggr0 50g'

2. Restrict the source volume by taking it offline 'vol offline *volname*'

3. Copy the contents 'vol copy start *src_vol* *dest_vol*'

-- after copy online the source vol --

vol online *vol name*
