Has anyone attempted to migrate Sybase raw device disks under AIX using the VSP as a virtualization engine?

Will the Sybase device mapping get hosed if the luns are virtualized behind the VSP? (Source systems are on 9980 and USP systems).

My Sybase admin says Sybase mirroring is to cumbersome and slow to use but if the raw device files can't be migrated using the VSP it looks like we won't have much choice (although he says he'd rather rebuild the server from scratch.

Any info or documentation would be appreciated!

Thanks
