My link was for my experiences with doing standalone host migrations.  Theya re very easy.

I have not done a CLuster migration yet but from what i read, it is pretty much the same except you have to turn off all nodes except one while the migration is going.  Then there are different steps to do depending on what OS you have.

Hopefully you can access this link for the Power Path Migration Enabler User Guide.  I would use version 5.5.  You will need to update all your powerpath hosts to 5.5 for it.  This guide has all the steps you need to do the migrations.

Sasamir,  i had a thread in the Host connectivity section about PPME.  the link is below.  This program is very easy to use.  I only used it with Windows OS so there might be extra steps you need to do for HP-UX.

Pre-requisites are the same for adding any host to a SAN.  Zone, create Storage group.  INstall PP, enable PPME and add licenseKey,

There is a PPME admin guide on Powerlink that has all the commands you need.
