This example describes how to migrate a file system between the Solaris OS and Linux 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
fscdsadm -v -t
If such files exist, move the files to another file system or reduce the size of the files.
fscdsadm -o add -t os_name=SunOS /mnt1
fscdsadm -o add -t os_name=Linux /mnt1
fscdsadm -l enforce
This is the last of the preparation steps. When the file system is to be migrated, it must be unmounted, and then the storage moved and mounted on the target system:
