HP SAN Presentation to two nodes
Posted on 2009-04-08
I have a situation where I have a number of Virtual Disks connected to the same amount of physical servers. We're consolidating the number of servers and Virtual Disks; so I need to copy the data from one virtual disk to another.
I've done a copy from machine to machine; i.e. over the network; but wanted to know if it was possible to present two virtual disks to one server (i.e. the disk I'm migrating; present to the server I'm migrating it to) and do the copy to speed up the copy process. I'm looking at approx 2TB in total over 5 Virtual Disks.
I was interested in what ramifications this would have; i.e. the same virtual disk being presented to two hosts; one reading; one writing.
Cheers in advance.
