SAN to SAN Migration of Data

  • Hi There,

    We have a MD3200 Storage device which runs our production environment and it's time to replace the SAN. We are looking at the SCV2020

    However, since the old SAN can;t talk to the new SAN. I am wondering what is the easiest -least disruptive way to get the VM's / Data from the current SAN to the replacement SAN.


  • Hi,

    You may try storage v-motion in Vmware.


  • Hello chbardt67,

    As anhnh77 stated if you can use storage V-motion that would be the easiest way. If you are not able to use V-motion then you would need to backup your data and then restore it on the new SAN.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.
