I am planning a migration of our fileserver to a new server. Today it is on
a xenserver vm. I will migrate it to a proxmox vm.

The shared folders are on a freenas ISCSI share via file extent. This is no
longer the best practice for this type of connection. For the new vm on the
proxmox I will use a zvol volume share.

What is the best approach for copying the folders and files? Maybe rsync?
