Hi all,

Next week I plan to add 3 new #6824 disks to out 720 (V4R3) in an attempt to
remove 24 old #9337's from our main ASP config, I will be keeping the old
disks to create a second ASP for non business critical data.
My question's are : when I come to move the data off the 9337's across to
the rest of the disks what exactly is involved, will I have to suspend RAID,
do I have to do 1 tray of disks (i.e. 1 parity set) at a time ?
SST shows 2 parity sets of 8 disks each and 2 parity sets of 4 disks each.
Also any guesses on how long it will take to transfer the data across, the
disks are about 85% full at present
Also if there's anything I haven't thought of !!!

Any help or advice greatly appreciated
