Does anyone know if the copy offload on NAS volumes works between volumes that are in different aggregates and different nodes?

From what I was told, as long as it is on the same cluster, then yes.

According to this kb, it says - "Yes".

 

Copy between volumes in same SVM (different node) = Yes (Your query)
Copy between volumes in different SVM, same cluster = Yes
