NetApp vol copy (copying one volume to another)

This can be useful for transporting a volume to another aggregate on the same or even another filer. It can also be useful when having issues with the current volume.

the syntax is simply:

vol copy start src dst

If you wish to copy all snapshots then:

vol copy -S src dst

Example:

vol copy -S important_vol new_important_vol

using a lowercase -s will only copy one volume, -s snapshot_name will copy only that snapshot. For more detail try the MAN page.
