EVA and VDISK migration

Hi all,


I have a question about an EVA4400 array which have to many disk groups, so we would like to merge 3 disk groups (8, 10 and 10 disks) into a more big one. The VDISKS in these 3 disk groups are used by some OpenVMS hosts. So my question is : Is it possible to move the VDISKS (If possible without disruption) from a disk group to another one ? What are your solution ?


Thank's for your reply.

There is no online-move. If the EVA has a BC license, one can minimize downtime using mirror-clones --

or use OpenVMS volume shadowing.
