Hello,

 

You should be able to migrate mixed volumes. The below steps were tested in a lab but i would recommend trying it ona  test volume/qtree before proceeding with the full migration as for your data can be different.

 

1. Assuming that a volume with mixed security style is created on the destination system.

2. Scan the source and destination volume from XCP NFS client.

3. Copy the data using XCP NFS; once complete you can verify by checking the security style which should be showing UNIX

Example:  file-directory show -vserver <vservername> -path <path>

 

4. Sync with XCP SMB with the -acl parameter; it will update the effective security style of the filer where it was NTFS along with the ACL info.

 

Thanks

Hello hmoubara
Thank you for your reply

 

Is it something like the following?

1, XCP (NFS) scan
2, XCP (NFS) copy
3,Check Security style (NFS) on FAS Command
3,XCP (SMB) sync with -acl option
