There is no function to copy LUN from one VA to another (like Continuous Access in XP).
HP recommends using OS based utilities for such a functionality (LVM mirroring for HP UX, disk mirroring for Windows, Veritas Volume manager,..)

Actually, now HP recommends using the HP SANLink Appliance (see http://www.hp.com/products1/storage/san/sanlink/index.html for more details) for remote copying of midrange storage devices as well as virtualization.

Software solutions lack managability that the SANLink provides... take a look.

Good luck

It is true that SANLink has better manageability, performance, etc than software based solutions. But the list price for it is 238 667 $. It makes sense to invest that ammount of money to connect a lot of servers and storages from different vendors. For mirroring only two VA's it is to expensive.
