Robocopy or XCP

BenBrazil

Hi,

 

I am looking to move CIFS data from one volume to another volume within the same cluster.

I've read forum discussions saying the Robocopy can have issues when copy data to a NetApp Cifs volume. These posts are a few years old so perhaps this is no longer the case.

I've also read that XCP functionality for CIFS isnt as advanced as it is for NFS.

 

Is there preferred tool to use?

 

thanks,

 

Ben
