what is the best practice to migrate HyperV cluster volumes from equallogic iSCSI boxes to EMC VNX?

I'm looking into the best ways to migrate some MS 2008 hyperV CSV's from an existing Gbit iSCSI based equallogic solution onto a unified VNX5500 with virtual pool. the plan is to go to 10 Gbit FCoE along the way. What are the commonly used migration technologies in this case?

thx,

Geert,

These are not a exact match to what you are looking for but its a start. I search both the ECN and Powerlink and these are what i found on Hyper-v migration to VNX arrays.

Using VNXe System with Microsoft Hyper-V

Describes how to set up a host to use Windows Hyper-V datastores on a VNXe system.

Thx William,

Looks quite good already, I’m guessing there will be principally no difference between VNXe and VNX as a migration target.

Geert
