NAYABSK

Hi All,

Is there a way out to move my whole aggregate to a brand new aggregate ??

Thanks,

Nayab

Yes, there is “aggr copy” command. Or you can temporary mirror aggregate and then remove “original” plex.

Is there a downtime required else still my I/O will continue during copy of old aggr to new aggr ??

In case of “aggr copy” it any change after copying is started will not be replicated, so effectively you have to stop access to aggregate. For aggregate mirroring it will be done in background and all changes will be synchronized. You can continue to use aggregate during synchronization.

How fast will be the copy is there any other faster way to do it like through any other protocol or any snap features ??
