Hi Eli,

I believe that is still the case with lfs_migrate.  If otherwise, we'll
probably hear soon.

You should be able to disable those OSTs while keeping the file system
active - via a command on the MDS(s) as well as the clients.  My notes have
the command as shown below, but please confirm via the appropriate Lustre

lctl set_param osc.<fsname>-<OST00xy>-*.active=0
