Cluster to Cluster vol move : feature enhancement

Hi,

this should be a rather easy question.

 

since I came to the conclusion : no it won't work.

 

scope/request  is: Cluster>Cluster vol migrate

I should migrate DP date from one backup filer to the other, and preserve as most meta data as possible (snapshots, shares, xdp-snapmirror-relations)
Nice to have: snapvault(xdp)/snapvault(XDP) cascading.

but this is not supported

so now;

finally I came to the conclusion: I will reinitialize a new relationship.

 

-or do you know of any better solution?

 

perfect world scenario: vol move cluster > cluster.

request for enhancement: frame work for datamigration cluster to cluster (as old dpm)

information: snapmirror is not licensed

I do not see this as a transparent operation in other method since the IP addresses associated with the mount would also need to move.  What you expect to happen if volumes A and B were both mounted on 192.168.1.1 on your source clsuter and you did a cluster > cluster move for volume A?

 

Re: Cluster to Cluster vol move : feature enhancement

well I do have:

 

cluster A

cluster B

cluster C

 

I have snapm xdp  A > B

I want volume move from B > C

 

I want to have snapm xdp A > C  (same relation as the former A > B)

Re: Cluster to Cluster vol move : feature enhancement

Solved:

 

Cascading the snapmirror/vault (xdp) finally did work. (maybe lack of vserver peers prevented the first try)

 

having now a snapmirror (XDP) A>B>C. phase: initializing...

 

after this I will dispose Cluster B, and rebuild all relations.

 

- still would be nice to have a tool set for this.

  maybe some simple powershell scripts can do this.
