We have XIV1 and XIV2. We need to migrate data from XIV1 to XIV2, keeping the mapping to the server.
The way I have it set up is as follows:
- Configure mirroring ports between the systems.
- Add a mirror of the volume in question, make it a slave on XIV2.
- On XIV2, change the role to be master.
- On XIV1, change the role to Slave.
- Remove the mirror.
The only problem with this setup is that the LUN mapping doesn't apply to the slave volume. So when I remove the volume from XIV1, the volume goes down on the server while I map it on XIV2.
Can I map the slave volume to the target server without breaking anything, so that when the mirror fails over, the mapping will already be there? Is there a better way to do what I'm trying to do?
