Storage Migration

we are running with VSphere 6.5 and attached with HP store virtual SAN (using software iSCSI to connect datastore).

I am planning to replace the host and storage.

The storage will be IBM storage (using Fibre channel to connect the datastore).

please advise what is the best way to migrate all the VMS from HP store virtual to new IBM SAN storage.

Datastore from HP should stay in the environment. Create an IBM Datastore and after that use storage migration.

we don't have VSAN license to migrate storage from HPE to IBM.

pls check my plan and let me know if is possible

 

1.crerate software iSCSI and Fiber channel connection in new ESxi host and attached IBM storage

2. Move all the VMs to new IBM storage using vmotion.

3. unmount the storge from ISCSI and mount the IBM stoarge.
