MSA 1000 to MSA 2000

Hi , I have oracle database server. Currently the database on MSA 1000 LUN. I want to change this LUN to new MSA 2012FC. I have dual port HBA on the server. How can I change this.

Hello,

if you're running the A/A firmware on the msa, you can present LUNs from both systems to you host and build a software mirror. After the successfull completion of the mirroring process, break up the mirror and detach the MSA1000 LUN.

What kind of OS is running on the server?

Best regards,
Patrick

O.S is win 2k3 Enterprise 64 bit edition.
Now the MSA is in Active /Standby mode.
This is BL 460c server with HBA mezanine (Dual port).

Hello,

in this case you need to update to A/A firmware. Then you can use MPIO Full-Features with the DSMs for MSA1x00 and MSA2000.

Or just run single-path to one of the storage arrays during data migration.
