Hi

I want to migrate a cinder volume from one backend to another.
Both backends are NFS exports from ontap, and on the same aggregate.
Using the command:
$ openstack volume migrate <volume-id> --host <cinder-host-name>
I am using netapp driver, How the volume will be migrated? through the Data Network or internally through ontap cluster network?

Take a look at the following links. It clearly states - If the storage can migrate the volume on its own, it is given the opportunity to do so. As you are using 'NetApp unified driver', it should be intra-cluster.

 

However, If the volume is attached to a VM instance, the Block Storage creates a volume, and calls Compute to copy the data from the original to the new volume.
