Copying one aggregate to another aggregate using the aggr copy command

You can use the aggr copy start command to copy one aggregate to another aggregate.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. Enter the following command to restrict the destination aggregate: aggr restrict aggr_name
  2. Enter the following command on the source or the destination system: aggr copy start [-p{inet|inet6}] [-S|-s snapshot_name] [-C] [srcfiler:]srcpath [dstfiler:]dstpath

    The following table lists the parameters and their descriptions:

    Parameter Description
    -p

    Selects the IP connection mode. The value for this argument can be inet or inet6.

    -S

    Copies all Snapshot copies from the source aggregate to the destination aggregate.

    -s

    Copies a particular Snapshot copy from the source aggregate to the destination aggregate.

    -C

    Checks if reallocation exists in the source aggregate or the destination aggregate.

    Note: If reallocation exists in the source aggregate, then the performance of the system is impacted.

    For more information about reallocation, see the Data ONTAP System Administration Guide for 7-Mode.
