We have a physical cluster with 2008 R2 OS and 2008 sql clustered.  We have a new SAN and would like to migrate all disks.

Is there a tool like clusterrecovery.exe on 2003 that can be used to move the quorum and SQL disk data to new drives within the current cluster?
Or is the best option to rebuild the cluster?

Thank you!

1. You can backup and restore the cluster informations with NtBackup utility.
2. You can connect the new storage to the server parallel with the old one and build another cluster with the new storage. Then stop SQL Server, depend new disks to the cluster nodes
3. You can walkthrough the article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/243195/EN-US
