Possible to migrate nfs vol from agg2 on controller 2 to agg1 on controller 1


I'm needing to migrate a vol from one controller to its partner. I'm running 8.1.3p1 7 mode. Some of the documentations that I read aren't clear on whether this is possible. I basicly would like to find a way to do this nondisruptively but I understand that the exports and qtrees on controller 1 need to be updated after the migration. Would it be possible to edit the exports, qtree, and quotas file ahead of time and run the commands to on controller 1 after the migration is complete?



 ** only in the same controller **


 you can with 'snapmirror migrate' without requiring the users to remount


 NFS service will be halted on the entire source controller (not the source volume alone)

This procedure is verified with users using hard NFS mounts. Clients using soft NFS mounts might experience errors if the client timeout is reached
