Clariion 4700 and LUN/LVM design

Hi experts...

I'm moveing some data from local disk to our new clariion. I'm wondering if anyone has experience implications of HP-UX 11 on the LUN/LVM design. eg: Should I put all data, binaries, user files all in the one LUN and one vg, or should I separate the different data types into separate volume groups?

Given that device and storage processor usage is optimised by the array and data separation can be managed as a filesystem level, I can't see a good reason not to have just one big LUN.

Any advice?

THanks.

Answering my own question here.

THere's a requirements worksheet on the emc site for migrations to the clariion. It's called questions and data migrations solutions.

Second. Careful on creation of vg's as the max pe's per pv will be set by the pv you add as the first. If you don't manually set this limitation higher, you'll be limited to LUN's of the same size or smaller.
