Data migration supports multiple and simultaneous tasks, with each migration process being a single task. While the data migration process is active, the non-FileStore source file system is available to clients. For data consistency, the source file system should be in Read Only mode during the final migration.
During the initial run, the entire contents of the source file system are copied. For the first run, Symantec recommends using an empty file system for the destination file system or directory. After the initial run, if there are any changes to the source, you can migrate the data again. RSYNC checks the content on the source files system on FileStore and then only copies the deltas.
To set up data migration, you configure a set of migration units to migrate data from one directory to another. A migration unit is defined as an ordered set of entries, and each entry type is a directory with a full pathname. In FileStore, full pathnames begin with the file system name.

The following are FileStore CLI commands for managing data migration tasks from a non-FileStore source system to a FileStore system:
