Migrating from NETAPP CIFS to Windows Server with Storage Migration Service

Schindler Christian 21 Reputation points


a customer wants to migrate NETAPP CIFS to Windows Server 2019.

We plan on using Storage Migration Service of Windows Server 2022.

Besides this blog post https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/storage-at-microsoft/storage-migration-service-now-supports-netapp/ba-p/2373420 I can't find any information about it.

Are there any know pitfalls, etc. which we should know in advance? Or any other documentation (besides the storage migration Service docs) that I simply didn't find?
