Here's what we're trying to achieve,

 

1. Create a volume and allocate it to a Host (This is going to be a P-VOL and this host is going to Boot From SAN)

Install Server 2012 R2 Standard

 

2. Create 7 Volumes with exactly the same block size as P-VOL (These 7 volumes are going to be S-VOL) and allocate them to 7 hosts respectively (These hosts are going to Boot From SAN too)

 

3. Create SI Pairs with the below Topology (With 3 L1 S-VOLs and 4 L2 S-VOLs = a total of 7 S-VOLs)

4. Run Sysprep with generalize on the P-VOL and shutdown the host (Set the P-VOL Offline)

 

5. Perform Split Pairs (Copy Pace set to Slower)

 

Does this work? Moreover, should the pairs be deleted after splitting?

 

Can somebody help?
