Convert Metro Cluster into HA pair

We want to convert our Metro Cluster into HA pair.

Current and desired situation are visual in the attached pictures.

What would be the best way to do realize the desired situation

And is it nessesery for FAS11 to go offline?

Re: Convert Metro Cluster into HA pair

Hi,

Looks doable, but you will need to offline the system to re-cable it.

Radek

Re: Convert Metro Cluster into HA pair

It is posible te re-cable with FAS11 still online?

My plan was, disable the ports on FAS11 where DATA' FAS11 are connected in old situation.

Then attach in that loop de FAS12 diskshelves (new situation) and then enable the ports again.

Re: Convert Metro Cluster into HA pair

Hot shelf removal is not supported.

Re: Convert Metro Cluster into HA pair

Do you want to keep SyncMirror running?

Cheers.

Re: Convert Metro Cluster into HA pair

Yes Ricardo,

I do wish that I'd keep my SyncMirror & I also wish that both source/target volume will be R/W able which my apps could have two identical data copy all the time.

Did I ask too much? Is it possible?

Thanks in advance & looking forward to hear from you soon.

No not really...

It's preferable that the storage of FAS11 stays online. I thought with making a new loop for the FAS12 storage shelves it would be possible...

Re: Convert Metro Cluster into HA pair

I believe you have to break SynMirror before doing any changes, then cable the shelfs, and when everything is ready resync SyncMirror.

Cheers.
