Hi All,

I am planning to migrate over 20  LUNs(Boot Volume and Raw Disk) using Volume Snapmirror to the new NetApp AFF250.

Can you please suggest steps for a one-time migration procedure?

Professional Services should be included in the purchase of a new filer and can help. The general steps are 1) set up SnapMirrors, 2) set up final resync after fencing i/o from source (old filer), 3) cut over LUNs to new filer, 4) online volumes and LUNs and present to host, 5) resume normal operations on new filer.

 

Is there anything specific you need? You can always create a test LUN and test the procedure for yourself.

Depending on the system you are migrating from, you would configure your cluster peering relationships, SVM peering relationships, and then set up your volume snapmirror to the new location.

 

See reference documentation: https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/ontap-sm-classic/volume-disaster-prep/task_creating_snapmirror_relationships_93_later.html

 

Seeing as you mentioned these are boot LUNs, it would be a good idea to shutdown the system these LUNs are being used to boot to ensure data stability.

 

 

As mentioned by Paul earlier, it would be a good idea to involve the professional services team to ensure the migration process is much smoother.
