Migrate Data From an Online Snapshot to a New Volume

If you are using an online, writable snapshot as an extent to an existing file system, it is recommended that you create a new volume and migrate the data from the snapshot to it.

  1. Create a new volume.
  2. Migrate the data from the online snapshot to the new volume.
  3. Connect the host to new volume.
  4. Verify that all data migrated successfully.
  5. Gracefully disconnect the initiators from online snapshot.
  6. Turn the snapshot offline and, if it is no longer needed, delete it.
