TR-3517 describes an upgrade path to a MetroCluster.
However it does this with an existing Act-Act environment to start off with.
But in a case I am working on, there are two geographically seperated locations and two individually active Fas3020 environments.
Is there any document describing the upgrade to MetroCluster based on such a scenario?
Can anybody indicate wath additional components are required and in what quantaties?
So I know there needs to be the same hardware on both sides etc. But what about licences?
Also, what is the best way to add the required info into PartnerEdge? Do I just add part-by-part, or is there a better way to do this?

So....at the very least you'll need (2) VI-MC cards (one per controller), licenses for SyncMirror and Cluster Remote, and a bunch of FC switches.
Given the amount of stuff you'll need to buy, I'd recommend pulling your local partner/engineer/NetApp resource into the picture -- they can probably get you precise answers more quickly than the Communities to be honest.
