EVA Converting disks between raid levels & best practice for SQL

Is there an "easy" way to convert a disk from say Vraid 5 to vraid 1 without having to snapclone it?

Also, i can't seem to find anything about best practices for SQL on EVA (I'm specifically referring to SQL 2005).

Thanks in advance and points will be awarded.

No, there's no way to change the RAID level of a vdisk directly, you have to clone it to another with different RAID level.

There are a lot of white papers about storage, EVAs and applications (SQL among them) here:
