Migration NetApp to Hitachi


Good afternoon: I have a migration situation from netapp to hitachi, can this be done with the FLI tool? I appreciate you can help me with this question.

Thanks in advance🙂



Sorry, No. FLI is not for NetApp to Hitachi, rather Hitachi to NetApp.


Foreign LUN Import (FLI) is a feature built into ONTAP that allows users to import data from foreign array LUNs to NetApp LUNs. It's not going to export to Hitachi. It is basically designed to migrate (LUN data) from heterogeneous SAN INTO ONTAP.
