We are currently running Ontap version 8.1.4P8 in our 7Mode filer - in the filer we have 1 32bit aggregate which is pretty much 100% full and a 64bit aggregate with plenty of space.
I am planning to move one of the volumes from the 32bit aggregate over to 64 bit aggregate using the following method:
The volume has many cifs shares configured at the filer end so copying the /etc/cifsconfig_share.cfg back seems the easiest way of doing it.
Please let me know if the above looks ok - I have tested in on a test volume and I was able to browse the cifs shares post the change.
The volume only holds CIFS shares - no NFS present.
Has anyone used a similar method to the one outlined below? I am intersted to hear views on people that have carried out a similar type of work.
If anyone is intersted the process outlines above worked and I was able to move the data between the aggregates without any problems
