Create Virtual Disk Copy
This command creates a virtual disk copy and starts the virtual disk
CAUTION: Before you create a new copy of a source virtual disk, stop any data
access (I/O) activity or suspend data transfer to the source virtual disk and (if
applicable, the target disk) to ensure that you capture an accurate point-in-time
image of the source virtual disk. Close all applications, including Windows
Internet Explorer, to make sure all I/O activity has stopped.
NOTE: See "Preparing Host Servers to Create a Virtual Disk Copy" on page 82.
NOTE: Removing the drive letter of the associated virtual disk(s) in Windows or
unmounting the virtual drive in Linux helps to guarantee a stable copy of the drive
for the virtual copy.
NOTE: You can have a maximum of eight virtual disk copies in progress at one time.
If you try to create more than eight virtual disk copies at one time, the RAID
controller modules return a status of Pending until one of the virtual disk copies that
is in progress finishes and returns a status of Complete.
