Hey!

I'm not exactly understanding your setup.

Do you have an EVA4400 and an EVA3000 on each site with Continuous Access already replicating between the two EVA4400 and between the two EVA3000?

Hello Eric,

Please note that HDD location in EVA represented by Rack number, Enclosure number and Bay number.

Now moving Bay means what ?

Bay is physical entity and for that you no need of CA BC.

Please clearly tell your exact requirement.

In order to implement CA you need to have Data Replication Group.

I hope you are trying to implement CA for two of your vdisk from EVA4400 and two vdisk from EVA3000 to same kind of setup in destination site.

Hi

To summarize, we now have 4 EVA (2 * 2 * EVA4400 and EVA3000) on site "A", I have to move them to another site "B".

What is the procedure for making this move to avoid losing data?

Ah okay.

One thing you want to check out is what to do with the batteries if the EVA is going to be turned off for longer than a couple of days.

I have to stop the EVA for about 3 hours to the move
