Delete the backup server paths for source storage system S-VOLs, and then establish backup server paths for target storage system S-VOLs.

  • Source volumes must be unallocated.
  • The target storage system secondary volumes are prepared.
  • Stop the backup script that is running on the backup server.
  1. On the Mobility tab, select Migration Projects.
  2. Expand the tree for a source storage system, and select a migration job.
  3. On the Copy Pair Configuration Migration Workflow tab, click Execute for Allocate Secondary Volumes.
  4. Note the host group information for the source and target storage systems, which will assist you when you are changing the backup server paths from the source storage system to the target storage system.
  5. Delete the source storage system backup server WWN:
    1. Launch Element Manager to run the native management tool for the source storage system to delete the backup server WWN from the host group of the source storage system.
    2. Verify that the backup server WWN has been deleted from the host group of the source storage system.
  6. Add the backup server WWN to the target storage system:
    1. On the Resources tab, for the target storage system, select Ports/Host Groups/iSCSI Targets and add the backup server WWN to the host group of the target storage system.
    2. Verify that the backup server WWN has been added to the host group of the target storage system.
Backup server paths for source storage system S-VOLs are deleted, and backup server paths for target storage system S-VOLs are created.
