VNX to Xtremio Migration

I am planning SAN copy push from VNX8000 to Xtremio X1 array. I did initiators zoning. I could see VNX SP WWN's in XIO but XIO WWN's are not seen on VNX. I got 2015 document. Its not helpful for Xtremio. I have done sancopy before with vmax and unity. With Xtremio WWN registration in VNX i have trouble. I tried to manually register Xtremio WWN in VNX, it still shows not logged in. 

 

Please let me know what can be done

There shouldn't be, you could try doing it from CLI. https://dell.to/2ZDMTcG

Hello,

Steps provided earlier speaks about adding target lun. While adding target lun, when i verify connection it fails. Xtremio WWN's are not logged into VNX, IS there a specific format to register Xtremio port WWN in VNX ?

I was able to create session. This is totally different from the way unity and vmax in sancopy.

 

However, i am using controller which also has other hosts zoned. In xtremio, we usually create luns with name. So i have provided lun ID. I just don't want to write data into the lun which is already in use. The article given is of old Xtremio UI. IS there a document with new html5 UI ?

Do you have a Linux host presented to XIO or can you present one temporarily?

Thank you everyone for pitching in your ideas. I successfully migrated 100's of hosts so far. For Xtremio we only need to zone and add device directly in to sancopy setup along with XIO port number and proper device ID.
