How do you moving the metadata-volume mirror to a second array

Folks,

My customer recently had a MDS issue that cause the VPLEX to lose connection to the array holding the metadata volume and mirror. When vplex was originally setup they only had 1 array.  Now they have a second array and want to put the mirror on the second array in order to avoid this issue and meet best practices.  What are the steps to do this?

thanks,

Scott

Re: How do you moving the metadata-volume mirror to a second array

from the cli guide

Use the meta-volume create command to create a new meta-volume. Specify the storage volume identified in step 1 as the target volumes. VPlexcli:/engines/engine-1-1/directors> meta-volume create --name meta_dmx --storage-volumes VPD83T3:6006016037202200966da1373865de11

Use the meta-volume move command to move the existing in-memory metadata to the new meta-volume. VPlexcli:/engines/engine-1-1/directors> meta-volume move --targetvolume
