We 're swapping out a NetApp with a VNX. Is there a good Doc here i can refer to ?
We 're looking into the possibility of migrating data using SAN Copy . Can any one please direct me to some Links where in I can go through EMC recommendation for migrating from Non EMC storage to EMC storage .
Thank you in anticipation!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks Dynamox !
Every thing is in planning stage , the talk is on with EMC engineering team to get a lincence that would support SAN copy to migrate Block data . I haven't got much detail as of yet .
I believe deepat is referring to an RFQ, a Request for Qualification. On a case by case basis, EMC engineering can approve SANCopy between unsupported hosts. There are just caveats and complicated issues to work out.
I was once able to get an approved RFQ to support an iSCSI copy from Netapp to VNX, but only for a very specific, limited configuration. And my coworker was unable to get something similar approved, because his configuration was a bit different (it involved SVC and MetroMirror, I believe).
But, I suspect Dynamox will ultimately be correct (isn't he always? :-)) and you'll need to move the data with host-based tools.
