Migrating traditional SQL server cluster to new SAN

We are running Biztalk 2013 R2 on an Active/Active 2-node traditional Windows 2012 server cluster on VMWare.

All LUNS are physical RDM's attached to EMC XtremeIO.

Is it possible or recommended to present new LUNS from new NetApp SAN and migrate cluster?

Or is building a new cluster and re-pointing Biztalk a better alternative?

First option seems to reduce amount of Biztalk work which would be good.

Thanks,

Morrisos

I have a very similar question.  We have a failover cluster configured with shared RDM files with two SQL nodes living on a six host cluster, all tied to an EMC disk array.  We have installed a new array as a replacement for the EMC array, and I've migrated everything but the SQL cluster, as I'm not clear on the steps involved.  Is there a migration path available, in situations like this, or does the SQL cluster need to be recreated on the new disk array, then the data migrated as a separate process?

Thanks!
