Easiest would be to use the Rob Urban cluster cloning scripts (http://www.unix-wissen.de/Tru64/cloning/).

You can also do this manually. It's possible to do addvol/rmvol commands even on the system disks for instance. But you'll have to properly create the boot member disks and Quorum disk using the clu_bdmgr command.

You can also temporarily delete the members and quorum disk one at the time and recreate them on the new storage (using clu_add_member and clu_quorum).

It can really be a very complicated procedure. If you want to get this over with quickly, I strongly suggest you a copy of Rob's scripts. They are excellently commented and very easy to use. You can't really go wrong as there are a lot of safety checks in the script. A lot of people are using these in their day to day operations.

Other scripts that do similar things have also been posted in this forum. If you search around a little you should find several (recent) articles about this.
