we have decided to decommission HDLM in favour of Storage Foundation DMP.
I am about to retest the in place upgrade on a windows 2k3 server as the last try done by my team ended up by a complete rebuilt!
So the server is Win2k3, HDLM (2 HBAs) and 2 LUNs of 1TB each.
The LUNs are
and presented as a mount point.
Now what would be the best sequence?
1 unmount volumes (disk mgt > delete volume...)
2 uninstall HDLM
4 confirm duplicated LUNs signatures
5 install Storage Foundation with DMP option
7 confirm consolidated LUNs signatures
8 rescan the disks and reactivate?
I will be trying it in the next days and will update with the results... but if you have any insight, please let me know.
