I have a challenge. The customer has a GAD environment. Active active. Quorum disk is at primary location.
They have a vmware cluster named cluster-esx10 this cluster has esx hosts. On primary and sedundary location. And multiple luns mapped. These luns are have GAD-PAIR status.
Now it comes. Customer has a new esx cluster called cluster-esx40. This cluster also has hosts at both locations, and have this cluster in use. The old and new cluster have different host_groups on CL3-A and CL4-A.
In Ops Replication there is a data flow and node named cluster-esx10. and use a policy GAD.
All volumes are connected to this data-flow.
However, the old cluster esx10 has been reused and has retained two LDEVs (luns) from the old cluster. The other LDEVs (luns) have been transferred to the new cluster "cluster-esx40" now I want ops protector to be set up in such a way that there will be a new dataflow and node with LDEVs that are mapped to those clusters.
I don't want the GAD volumes to have to be rebuilt from scratch.
What is the correct and/or best way to achieve this.
I'd love to hear your hints and tips.
Ps, additional problem is that customer is still using outdated version ops center.
Sincerely, Pieter Visser
