Pre-positioning/pre-loading flexcache volumes

What is the best way to pre-position or pre-loading data into a flexcache volume to a SAx00 appliance?

Hi Mark - scripts can be built to read the files through the FlexCache volume, or you can just read the working data set, thereby  populating the cache.

  • The scripts need to read every file.
  • Listing every directory only pulls over basic file info and not the  actual data blocks.

Something like this: ls –lR * | cat > /dev/null
