volume move

When doing a volume move with compression and thin provisioning on from one aggr. to another Aggr. in same cluster. Does the volume expand or stay the same size wise?


Re: volume move

Compression and deduplication is kept when you move a volume to a different aggregate, this is a block level copy, like SnapMirror.

The volume will be the same size at the destination.

Re: volume move

So that means the same if doing a SnapMirror the compression still stays and the thin provisioning as well?

Re: volume move

Indeed, as is deduplication.
