You can use SnapMirror or the vol copy command to copy volumes from the source to the destination. There are some similarities between them. However, there are significant differences too.
These commands differ in several important ways, as listed in the following table:
|SnapMirror||The vol copy command|
|Supports scheduled, incremental updates of Snapshot copies, replicated from the source to the destination volumes||Does not support incremental updates|
|Supports qtree-level replication between the source and destination systems||Supports only volume replication and not qtree-level replication|
|Requires an appropriate license||Does not require an additional license|
