You can use BC and do a clone to another lun which has vraid1. Requires downtime on aplication/server and also reuires BC installed (60 days free license is included when you install command view).

We don't have any other way of doing it?

I mean without using BC.

at present eva dont support online migration of vdisk to another raid level. so the only option is doing it with Business Copy .

If downtime is not acceptable, you might wait until february.

I know they are working on online vraid migration (will require bc license) - and hopefully it will be in the february release.

I dont have the license for BC and all replies are suggesting that its only possible with BC license
