Are you trying to move from something like a windows server to NetApp native NAS?   if so yes,   XCP or other tool will need to be used,  there's no "conversion" mechanism.

thanks for reply

 

I mean if i have two volumes like this example

 

3tb vol1(san/fc)

3tb(empty) vol2(nas/nfs)

 

than and i want to move files from 3tb vol1(fc) to empty vol2(nfs).

 

in this situation should i use NetApp XCP?
