Hi all,

I have a 7400 and 8450 array and I am going to migrate a file server from one to the other using svMotion. The server is 8 Tb in size and is remote copied to our DR site on a 7200. Is there a way to break the remote copy, perform the svMotion and then re-pair the volume on the new array with the data on the DR array that is already there so I don't have to re-sync all of the data over my WAN?

I know peer motion is an option but if I can do this via svMotion that would be better.

Thanks in advance.
Mike :)

I'm not sure how that would work? With Storage vMotion your are not working at 3PAR VV level. You will have a different 3PAR volume on the new array for you to svmotion to.

If I understand what you are looking for correctly try this out:

I just used it to remove a VV from a remote copy group and readd without doing a full resync.
