Dear NetApp Gurus,
Would you please share your procedure on copy volume within the same filer?
Thanks in advance & looking forward to hear from you.
See The Solution
VOL COPY WITHIN THE SAME FILER
1. Create destination volume of sufficient size "vol create *name* *aggregate* *size" eg 'vol create testvol aggr0 50g'
2. Restrict the source volume by taking it offline 'vol offline *volname*'
3. Copy the contents 'vol copy start *src_vol* *dest_vol*'
-- after copy online the source vol --
vol online *vol name*

Salutes to Jason for the correct answer :>)
You're very welcome
If 8.0 and San you can vol move too. Or motor, vol copy and ndmpcopy like Eugene mentioned.
Please see the man pages for the 'ndmpcopy' command ?
I hope this response has been helpful to you.

Thanks Eugene for your quick response.
Would you please also advice the pro/cons between ndmpcopy and volume copy?
Vol copy is block for block, and probably faster.
ndmpcopy can do incrementals, which may be of help.
Most times I ask customers to do data migration using snapmirror local - even on a demo license key.
