If you want to move all homedirectories to a volume on the same or another server, but you want to keep the “path” on the volume to the homedirectory, swapvol can help you to update the “home directory” attribute of the users. The actual move has to be done with some other tool.

Swapvol will not repair any homedirectory attributes. Use Homes (also on
Coolsolutions) or some other tool.

Short instruction:

Select the correct context (use button on the right).
Select the new volume object (button)

Do a test run,if everything is ok, do the final run.
