moving node data from one stgpool to another...
SUB: moving node data from one stgpool to another...
I have seen postings and studied the archives -- the
following question has been posted before, but i cant find
more than a vague answer, so...
nodeA in domainA which eventually points to stgpoolA
there exists a domainB which eventually points to stgpoolB
which is on a different disk area.
you issue: update node nodeA domain=domainB
it appears by my testing and research:
nodeA does indeed get updated to domainB
an incremental migration causes changed files to go to
previously migrated files stay in stgpoolA
an expire inventory command brings a higher active copy
count into alignment.
the node cannot get to the previously migrated files
since they are in a different domain/storage pool.
the administrator can delete (or rename) the filespace
which triggers a full incremental on the client.
a "move data" command will move some of the data from one
stgpool volume to another, but you may also move another
node's data and besides, what about the diskpool
export/import with update/renames have been rumored to
work, but also rumored not to work -- sequence is apparently
so, the questions are:
is there some way to get the prior node data from stgpoolA to
can a sequence of export/import commands be made to work.
and if so, what are they.
