Moving Disksuite stripe between controllers

I want to know how I can move a stripe created with DiskSuite 4.0 to a different controller, without losing the data on the stripe.  I'm moving from the built in controller (0) to sbus1 (controller 1).  Everything else (SCSI id, etc.) will remain the same.  I tried it on a test machine, and the state databases couldn't figure out what happened.  I couldn't find any info on this  in the disksuite documentation...

While I'm at it, can you move a stripe or other metadevice between machines?  I'm thinking that if either is possible, they both are...

Thanks!

Well, just an idea but it may be the answer (feel free to reject if it isn't).

I had a similar prob with the DiskSuite 4.0 (moving metadevices), however not among different controllers. What I did, was to mirror the old (existing) metadevices to the new one and later de-mirrored them by removing the old one. I have moved the filesystem successfully by this methode.

Hope this helps,
