Volume migration in SnapDrive for UNIX

Contributors netapp-ivanad akseldavis Download PDF of this page

You can execute SnapDrive operations during volume migration.

The volume migration consists of the following three phases:

  • Setup

  • Move

  • Cutover

SnapDrive for UNIX operations function smoothly in setup and move phases.

When you execute any SnapDrive commands during the cutover phase, SnapDrive for UNIX can retry the operation as defined in the variables volmove-cutover-retry and volmove-cutover-retry-sleep in the snapdrive.conf file.

If SnapDrive for UNIX operations fail during the volume migration, you must perform the SnapDrive for UNIX operations after the volume migration operations are completed.
