I have a client that has multiple vendor SANs that have been virtualised using IBM SVC.
They are considering moving lock stock and barrel to NetApp in a different DC and have already decided on the toolset to use for the VM environment.
However they have many physical SAN attached servers that they wish to migrate and want a demonstration of the migration.
I'm thinking of using OSSV to get the data to the NetApp (over the WAN) followed by a flexclone split on cutover.
Does this sound realistic?

no this sounds not realistic!
you cant use OSSV as a Migrationtool, because OSSV saves the data like a cifs share.
With NetApp Syncsort integrated Backup Solutin DPX you can migrate Data directly in LUN's or Vmware.

Its actually possible, but perhaps only as a last resort.
You need to convert the snapvault relationship to a snapmirror and then break it to make the qtree writeable.
