How to plan for a SAN Fabric migration for SAN Lun's/Disks without losing data.

[ Edited ]

we are migrating our fiber network from a SAN switch to a Director level SAN switch, I am trying to find out what information i need to verify about any SAN LUN's before we move cables?

 

we will be doing 1 side of the fabric at a time, but no one can tell me other than we need to verify what WWID's are of the LUN's. I would like to be a little more prepared incase something happens. Anyone have any ideas?

 

I would like to know how to verify that both paths on the LUn's are working, stuff like this would be helpful also...or anything at this point.

Re: How to plan for a SAN Fabric migration for SAN Lun's/Disks with losing data.

You should provide some more details, e.g. the OS version, the LVM version, etc ...

>> with losing data

You don't want to keep the data???


Hope this helps!
