Migrating to new storage system

Jump to solution

Trying to figure out the best way to migrate vms to a new storage system. I am using SAS/HBA. I have two SAS ports on each host. Can I connect the host to both storage systems via SAS to move the vms? Should I change the multipathing to fixed? Currently round robin. Unsure how to proceed with this migration.  Thanks

Well I definately over thought this. I don't need the host connected to both storage systems. Vmotion is done through the vmotion network, not SAS, duh.

I setup 1 new host to the new storage and just used vmotion (really wishing I had live storage vmotion) to move the vms. Pretty simple.
