Migrate diskGroup on MD3000i SAN

Hi,
I need the syntax to migrate a diskGroup on our MD3000i GEN1 SAN to another MD3000i GEN2.

I already tried:
SMcli "SAN" -c "start diskGroup [1] export;"

and I get the following error:
Encountered "<EOF>" at line 1, column 33.
Was expecting one of:
    "blink" ...
    "defragment" ...

SMcli failed.

I know it can be done but I can't get it work

Thanks

Hi,

According to the MD3000i Commnad Line Manual (http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/md3000i/en/2ndGen/CLI/PDF/CLIMR2g.pdf), the Virtual Disk Copy feature enables you to copy data from one virtual disk (the source) to another virtual disk (the target) in a single storage array (Page 77).  Thus it is impossible to copy data from one array to another using the CLI only. Thanks

Best regards,
Patrick
