So i should understand that you have same or more space as same as the source controller at the destination controller  ??

 

In that case i would suggest a copy method or best option to go with snapmirror 

 

1) Create as same agrregate structure in the destination as same as source ( Including volumes )

 

2) Create a snapmirror relation and initiate the transfer........

 

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

 

May i know if you are going to migrate with HA-Pair or across to other controller in a different HA-pair ?

 

 

If this is within a HA-Pair then follow the below procedure 

 

 

Now let us assume i have two controller filerA & filerB and i am moving aggregate from A to B 

 

 

 

Change options (both controllers):

 

options disk.auto_assign off

 

options autosupport.enable off

 

options httpd.enable.access on (for disk refresh)

 

Verify Volume Status:

 

vol status –s

 

Verify Disks

 

filer> disk show <disks>

 

Offline Volumes

 

filera> vol offline

 

Offline Aggregates

 

filera> aggr offline <aggr>

 

filera> aggr offline <aggr>

 

Note current disk ownership/IDs:

 

Removing ownership of the disks:

 

filera> priv set advanced

 

filera*> disk remove_ownership <disks>

 

Verify Disk Ownership (not owned):

 

filera> disk show –n

 

filera> options disk.auto_assign on

 

On the controller filerB

 

Change disk auto assign:

 

options disk.auto_assign off

 

Verify Disk Ownership (not owned):

 

filerb> disk show –n

 

Take ownership of the disks

 

priv set advanced

filerb*> disk assign 0b.22 0b.23 –s <filerb serial#>

 

Verify Disk Ownership (all visible disks)

filerb> disk show –v

 

Verify disks correctly assigned

filerb> aggr status –r / aggr status –s

 

Online Aggregate

 

filerb> aggr online <disks>

 

filerb> aggr online <disks>

 

Change options back:

 

options disk.auto_assign on

 

options autosupport.enable on

 

options httpd.enable.access off (for disk refresh)

 

 

Thanks,

Nayab
