Present external storage to a 7-mode filer: both emc vnx and IBM A9000

Hi, I am trying to present storage form both an EMC VNX and an IBM A9000 to a netapp 7-mode filer. (maybe doing the same with cDOT later)
I am trying to  expand my 7-mode filers storage with both A9000 (first) and then EMC VNX storage.
I cannot find any documentation - anyone have any links/advice?

And they need to be a vseries or flex array personality.  I don't beleive they can be both FAS and vseries.

Thanks I'm checking through those documents now. The Filer is zoned into two fabrics I see the wwpns correspond to the out put from a "fcp show adapter" - which is good.

However, I also want to migrate some Netapp Luns to another IBM A9000. I have been checking the the Netapp Filer and I cannot find

any of the initiator wwpn's zoned in - I'm guessing that is one of the first steps?

 

Do you know of any documents which mention best practice for migrating volumes from a Filer to A9000?

 

Thanks. Rob
