Hi,
if you can configure on xp128 the same LUNs as the eva5000 systems, you can configure the same LVM volumes. Then you can copy the volumes using dd command.

Re: MOVE DATA FROM eva5000 to xp128

Sounds like you are working with a Tru64 Unix cluster. It uses persistent LUN binding based on the LUN's WWN. A simple copy, as you have found out, obviously does not work.

I know from my colleagues that this is described somewhere in the documentation, bceause they have done it a few times. Please make sure that you have a *good* backup before you start. If you like to try it on your own, be prepared to restore your system environment from scratch.

If you are not familiar with it, can not try it out somewhere else first and this is a mission critical system - see if you can get local help from someone who is experienced.
