vFiler unit migration without copying data

vFiler unit migration in an HA pair is the no-copy transfer of a volume-level vFiler unit from the source node to the other. vFiler unit migration in an HA pair uses software-based disk ownership to transfer ownership of the aggregate that contains the vFiler unit from the original source node to the destination node in an HA pair.

The migration operation is quickly completed as the vFiler unit migration is performed through transfer of disk ownership rather than by copying data from one set of disks to another.
