I currently have a Windows\SQL cluster running on a few lefthad NAS iSCSI storage devices
We just bought EMC storage, and need a plan on how to transfer the sql database,
shares, and etc. From the old lefthand devices to the new EMC storage via ISCSI

We need to decomission the old lefthand devices and have the cluster use the new EMC device.
How do I go about doing this, while reducing errors, and minimizing impact to users.

Depending the database size, you can stop the SQL Server service and move the data files.

My question is twofold.
(1) would i have to break the cluster then add the new storage to the cluster -- What is best way to do this,
I would have to create a new qurom and etc.
(2) copying the data, \ SQL database from one storage array to the other.
