Copy a NetApp volume to 3PAR

I would like to copy/migrate a NetApp volume to HP 3PAR.  What is the best way to do this with the least down time if at all? 

Re: Copy a NetApp volume to 3PAR

What kind of data are we talking about?

Your most likely bet, is to look at host-based migration.

I have a bunch of volumes with SQL databases being hosted.  How do I go about doing host-based migration?

Re: Copy a NetApp volume to 3PAR

You present LUNs from both storage systems to the same host & use something like robocopy or xcopy to to move the content.

On the SQL side you detach database from the old LUN & attach it from the new LUN.

The main gotcha is to properly copy Windows ACLs, but this can be sorted using right switches with robocopy / xcopy.

That works!  Thanks.
