This example describes how to migrate a file system between platforms on an ongoing basis. Some of the following steps require a backup of the file system to be created. To simplify the process, you can create one backup before performing any of the steps instead of creating multiple backups as you go.
To perform an ongoing migration
Use the following command to ensure that there are no files in the file system that will be inaccessible after migrating the data due to large file size or to differences in user or group ID between platforms:
# fscdsadm -v -t target mount_point
# fscdsadm -o add -t os_name=SunOS /mnt1 # fscdsadm -o add -t os_name=Linux /mnt1
# fscdsadm -o add -t os_name=HP-UX /mnt1 # fscdsadm -o add -t os_name=Linux /mnt1
# fscdsadm -l enforce mount_point
# umount mount_point
Make the physical storage and Volume Manager logical storage accessible on the target system by exporting the disk group from the source system and importing the disk group on the target system after resolving any other physical storage attachment issues.
