Re: Convert Thin LUN to Thick LUN

Ok, so it will be like below?

1) Create Thick LUN with any name

2) Migrate LUN to this new LUN

3) Once migration is finished, I can reaname this new LUN to desired name.

Any production impact?

Re: Convert Thin LUN to Thick LUN

new LUN will assume old LUN identitity (lun number ..and i think lun name as well, you can always change it if you like). 

production impact - this operation will add i/o overhead so you if are worried you can do it during off-business hours as well as tweak copy priority.

Re: Convert Thin LUN to Thick LUN

Is there any change /advancement in thick to thin conversion process ? even in VNX2 series

We are planning for some 15TB migration. So this method of conversion will be tedious and time consuming.

Thanks

Re: Convert Thin LUN to Thick LUN

The short answer for each scenario, thin to thick and/or thick to thin, is no...
