We’re moving our server room to a new location in the same building, the only thing changing will be the physical location. Included in the move is an FC SAN (EVA4400)  Do we just shutdown the SAN, make very careful notes where everything's attached, label leads and fibre, move EVA4400 to new location and reattach the same at new location. Is this all we need to do, we just want to be sure we don’t miss anything and it wil all work!?!?

Great.  Glad it was smooth for you.   You might want to now take a look at all the error logs in routers, TCP/IP, disks, everything that uses networking or storage-related cables to see if error counters are high.  Could indicate a partially broken cable or connector that is slightly damaged.
