Starting data copy for a transition project

You can initiate a data copy from 7-Mode volumes to ONTAP volumes for a baseline transfer. The baseline transfer starts when the data copy schedules configured in a project becomes active. After the baseline transfer is complete, the ONTAP volumes are updated periodically based on the data copy schedule.

Before you begin

About this task

If you are transitioning to an existing SVM, the volumes are created during this operation. If you are transitioning to a new SVM, the SVM and its volumes get created during this operation.

SnapMirror relationships are created between 7-Mode and ONTAP volumes.

Procedure

Start the data copy: transition start -p project_name
If the start operation fails and data copy is not started, you must resolve the issues and run the transition start command again.
7-Mode Transition Tool>transition start -p project_finance

The project moves to the copy-baseline state. After the baseline transfer is completed, the project moves to the copy-update state.
