7mode vol move nfs volume in non-default vfiler needs to be moved to different aggregate

Need to work up a procedure to move a single large (NFS) volume that resides in non-default vfiler (call it vfiler1)

 

Note vol move won't be suitable, because of the  specific vfiler. 

 

Has anyone done this and how please ? 

I'm assuming need downtime to complete, take vol offline and vol copy , but not sure how to handle the NFS side.

 

Existing SATA aggregate capacity is full, so need to create new SAS aggregate - data2, and copy old volume into here. 

 

 

Thanks.

Basically unexport the volume, do the vol copy, then create an export on the new volume with the same parameters. It will use an IP address in the new vfiler.
