Need Help On Solaris Cluster Steps For EMC San Migration

I need to perform a EMC SAN migration from Hitachi to EMC VMAX and need some help on

 

1. the Solaris cluster shutdown sequence

2. firmware upgrade steps on Solaris cluster

3. cleanup steps for moving the volumes from old luns to new array once ( cleaning the old lun information before shutting down the nodes and configuring the new lun information after the migration is complete and bring-up the nodes back online)

    You cross-posted this same question to at least one other forum web site:

    http://www.unix.com/solaris/232261-need-help-solaris-cluster-steps-san-migration.html

     

    Proper forum etiquette would have you be polite and mention that fact so that people wouldn't spend time preparing a response that you might have already received elsewhere.   That would be a waste of their time.

     

    All you needed to do was paste a link to the other post.

    (You need to do that EVERYWHERE you cross-post to follow good etiquette.)

    Hi Rukbat,

     

    Yes I did post it in two different places but my idea was to reach out different people in different forums and I would have posted the info in other forums as soon as I find the right solution.

     

    I am SAN admin and this is my first time working with Solaris. Anyways Thanks for the advice, will follow it from next time

    Yes, that is what every person that has ever cross-posted has ever said when they do it.

    and I would have posted the info in other forums as soon as I find the right solution.

    That is fine.

    The vast majority of other people that cross-post do not ever bother to do that.

    That is why I responded with the guidance to etiquette.

    We will all look forward to that result.

    Many people that never join a discussion thread will read forum posts to learn.

    We can hope that you will be able to teach them from your experiences.
