Hi,

one way should be the following:
both storages should be presented to the same hosts and then copied the file systems/files from the MSA to EVA newly created volumes.
Info on the Multipathing coexistence on the same host between the MSA and EVA is here:

OpenVMS (page 203)
Tru64 (page 205)
Linux (page 209)
Windows (212)

Thanks for the reply. So i can install MPIO for MSA 1500 Active/Active and connect MSA 1500 and EVA 6000 to same system and migrate the data..

Hello,

yes, this will work. I've done this a many times. I often used host-based mirror, to mirror the volumes instead of copying the data. Often this worked without downtime for the application.
