Dear NetApp Gurus,
Would you please share your procedure on copy volume within the same filer?
Thanks in advance & looking forward to hear from you.
See The Solution
Please see the man pages for the 'ndmpcopy' command ?
I hope this response has been helpful to you.
At your service,

Thanks Eugene for your quick response.
Would you please also advice the pro/cons between ndmpcopy and volume copy?
Vol copy is block for block, and probably faster.
ndmpcopy can do incrementals, which may be of help.
Most times I ask customers to do data migration using snapmirror local - even on a demo license key.
( Your sales rep can get you keys ...)
If 8.0 and San you can vol move too. Or motor, vol copy and ndmpcopy like Eugene mentioned.
VOL COPY WITHIN THE SAME FILER
1. Create destination volume of sufficient size "vol create *name* *aggregate* *size" eg 'vol create testvol aggr0 50g'
2. Restrict the source volume by taking it offline 'vol offline *volname*'
3. Copy the contents 'vol copy start *src_vol* *dest_vol*'
-- after copy online the source vol --
vol online *vol name*
