I NEED CHANGE CONNECTION TO STORAGE

Hi,

I have the following question:

Actually I have a HP9000 connect by DAS a STORAGE and presented 2 LUN's, I need to add a SAN Switch and remove the DAS in other words I disconnect the STORAGE and connect to the SAN Switch and then connect the Server to the SAN Switch, then by means of zonning I pressent the same 2 LUN's of the Storage.

My question is when pressente the 2 LUN's by means SAN the path maybe change or is the same when I have connect by DAS a STORAGE.

Thanks,

You are converting from direct-attached storage to SAN attached storage. Yes the hardware paths of the LUNs will change and as a result the disk device files will change. If you have LVM you need to go through a vgexport/vgimport exersize.

Yes, vgexport needs to have deactivated vg.

Search in the forums for "vgexport vgimport", there are many threads. A good one is here but look at others as well.
