Migrating Virtual Servers and NSS Volumes onto New Cluster

Hey There kids...

I've got a 2 Node NW6.5 cluster running NCS 1.7

I am wanting to put in another 2 Node cluster and migrate some of the
resources over onto this new cluster. The new cluster will be connected into
the same SAN and hence will already physically be connected to the storage
where the partitions, pools and volumes reside.

Now as far as I have been told, this should be possible by deleting and
recreating the Edir objects which point to the volumes, pools and virtual
servers.

Does anyone have any idea of the exact procedure required? What I do not
want to do in any way shape or form is actually physically have to move data
as there's a hell of a lot of it.

All help and advice very appreciated,

Cheers..

Phil

Re: Migrating Virtual Servers and NSS Volumes onto New Cluster

I've asked the question in the past about running multiple clusters on a SAN
and got an emphatic response that they must be hidden from each other.
You'll likely use LUN masking to hide the two clusters from each other on
the SAN making it impossible for the new cluster to see the exisiting
cluster's data.

So I set up a second cluster like was recommended and found that it wasn't
as big of a deal as originally thought to move data. Using the
migration/consolidation wizard it keeps all of the netware attributes and
trustee assignments, and my 40gb volumes migrated in under an hour each.
