    Hello

    I believe it's possible if I look at the compatibility guide here, but be sure to check your systems:
    https://compatibility.hitachivantara.com/

    NDM Compatibility guide here:
    https://compatibility.hitachivantara.com/products/ndm

    Here is an user guide, I got from a quick google, I'm sure there's a later one out there on Hitachi's site:
    https://knowledge.hitachivantara.com/Documents/Management_Software/SVOS/9.8/Nondisruptive_Migration/Nondisruptive_Migration_User_Guide

    EDIT: Updated to the latest NDM guide at the time of posting.

    If you'd like a demo about it reach out to your account team and ask them for CoE[Center of Excellence] demo about it.

    Hello Owais

    I believe this is possible if you take a look at our compatibility matrix here(but please double check your configuration):

    Hello

    I posted the articles, but seems like community admins are not approving posts.
    If you go to knowledge <dot> hitachivantara <dot> com.
    There's some hyper links at the bottom of the page. The 'Product Compatibility' link page you can select NDM[Non disruptive migration] and check your configuration.

    If you google Hitachi NDM User guide, or search the same site it should show you the user guide. I've also posted it in an article here that should pop up once it's approved.

    Regards
    William

    1. Customer Supported NDM is only via Hitachi Command Suite

    2. For a CLI license for NDM you have to contact your Sales representative

    3. Post the OS flavor and version; Multipathing Software and Version; Cluster details if any as NDM support is qualified based on these factors

    4. The microcode has to be the below:-

    G800 83-03-0x or later HUS VM 73-03-44 or later
