moving sql database from dell 220 storage array to iscsi san, cluster environment, any ideas?
Posted on 2011-04-28
i was given the task of putting together a project of moving multiple SQL databases that we have on a DELL 220 STORAGE ARRAY to a DELL iSCSI EQUALLOGIC
currently, there are 2 servers connected to the dell 220s via SCSI (active/passive mode), we are looking to move them to 2 brand new servers (in either active/active sql or active/passive sql) and the database will reside on the dell equallogic san... any ideas on how to approach this? would a hot cut be needed? or would i be able to add the 2 new servers to the current environment, and then slowly move over the databases to the new SAN? any ideas, greatly appreciated!
