So i have a vnx5700 connected to a VPLEX local. I am installing a new vnx7600 that will also connect to VPLEX local. My question is how can I migrate CIFs from vnx5700 to vnx7600? If there is a way to do it non-disruptive that would be great. The CIFs share do have a Data Mover to them. Please be detailed as possible. See pic below.
migrate using VNX replicator, yes there will be a small outage but very minimal as you failover and DNS record is updated (assuming you are using DDNS).
or migrate the complete VDM include CIFS Server and all of ifs file systems and shares
see the nas_migrate CLI command - technote available from support.emc.com
Please see here https://support.emc.com/docu47583_Using_VNX_File_Migration_Technical_Notes.pdf?language=en_US
Video about it https://support.emc.com/media50453_VNX_Video:_File_Migration.mp4?language=en_US
yes under the cover it is using Replicator but it can do more than the regular commands
like migrate System Settings, existing snapshots, IP adresses, ....
so it is more transparent than Replicator GUI/CLI
