Re: Unity Lun Migration

I dont think we got Lun migration feature yet available on Unity GA.

However i think a workaround can be possible (involves several steps and not an online activity, requires downtime).

Unity GUI : Do a local replication to the required pool and after fully sync, stop IO, sync again, then remove the replication, remove source lun host access and assign the replicated lun with same HLU as before

via CLI : Create required lun with replication destination flag set as "yes" - example:

05:08:34 service@none spb:~> uemcli /stor/prov/luns/lun create -name rep_dest_for_sv10 -descr "rep dest" -pool pool_1 -size 1G -thin yes -replDest yes

ID = sv_12

Operation completed successfully.

05:08:59 service@none spb:~> uemcli /prot/rep/session create -srcRes sv_10 -dstType local -dstRes sv_12 -name lun_sv10_rep -syncType manual

ID = 42949673010_APM1234_0000_42949673016_APM1234_0000

Operation completed successfully.

Remaining steps can be done from GUI

Again not as easy as VNX, until this gets implemented

Re: Unity Lun Migration

GUI:

Select the LUN which you want to migrate and client on more actions on the top. you will see Move option and then select the respective pool which you want to migrate. I tired this in 500F running with 4.1 OE
