RE: data migration

If I understand the question, you are looking for the best method outside of SAN Copy and not have an outage with the cluster?

If you can't take an outage, then can you take a snapshot? Then use xcopy or double-take or whatever backup utility you like to copy the directory structure/files to the new lun & use transaction logs to roll forward...

Hopefully an Exchange/SQL expert will add a comment or their experience...
