Move a SnapLock volume


You can use the volume move command to move a SnapLock volume to a destination aggregate.

Starting in ONTAP 9.8, you can move a SnapLock volume to a destination aggregate of the same type, either Enterprise to Enterprise, or Compliance to Compliance. You must be assigned the SnapLock security role to move a SnapLock volume.

What you’ll need
  • You must have created a SnapLock-protected audit log before performing SnapLock volume move.

  • The destination aggregate must be the same SnapLock type as the SnapLock volume you want to move; either Compliance to Compliance or Enterprise to Enterprise.

  • You must be a user with the SnapLock security snaplock role.

  1. Using a secure connection, log in to the ONTAP cluster management LIF:

    ssh snaplock_user@node_mgmt_ip

  2. Move a SnapLock volume:

    volume move start -vserver SVM_name -volume SnapLock_volume_name -destination-aggregate destination_aggregate_name

  3. Check the status of the volume move operation:

    volume move show -volume SnapLock_volume_name -vserver SVM_name -fields volume,phase,vserver
