For SANCopy, the destination LUN must be the same size or larger. For MirrorView/S, the LUNs must be identical. For MirrorView/A, the destination LUN must be the same size of larger than the source.

There is a limit to the number of SANCopy sessions you can run - depends on which storage system is running SANCopy. I'd suggest you use incremental SANCopy of the CX3- array to copy data to the CX700. Judging from your other question, you will be using the CX700 for test and development, so an incremental SANCopy of your databases gets a copy across without downtime on the LUNs on the CX3- (an Incremental SANCopy makes a full copy of the source when you start it, then keeps the source and destination in sync until you are ready to split the relationship. Incremental SANCopy must always be used on the source - it won't work from the destination storage system).
