I have a File Server that I'm needing to replace and I am wanting to move the connected storage to a new file server without loosing the data.
The issue is that the file server I'm retiring is Windows Server 2003 connected via Fibre Channel to storage. On the storage there are 3 different logical disks presented to the File Server and on the File Server those 3 logical disks are spanned into one volume.
If I present them to the new Windows Server 2012 File Server, how can I re-establish the spanned volume without losing any data?
The reason I want to do it this way is because there's just too much data to backup and restore in an effective amount of time. If I can just moved the spanned volume from one computer to the other it'll minimize my downtime.
