sysnap: VMAX: Can we snap from Source to larger size VDEV?

Hi All,

Quick Q:

sysnap: VMAX: Can we symsnap from Source (50GB) to target VDEV of 50.01GB?

SYMCLI: 7.3.0.1

I know I symclone. Want  to be sure if symsnap can be done.

Regards,

Ashwa

I know that symclone can be done from smaller source to larger target - in VMAX and not DMX.

Want  to be sure if symsnap can be done.

Not allowed. You will receive an error " the size of the source device is not equal to the size of the target device"
