FLI online workflow


This is the second of the four FLI workflow examples, which covers FLI online migration. The source array in this example is an EMC VNX5500.

the online workflow has the following tasks:

  1. Preparing the LUN path

  2. Performing a disruptive cutover

  3. Importing the source LUN data

  4. Verifying migration results

  5. Cleaning up the FLI online migration

  6. FLI online post-migration tasks


If the NetApp controller destination is a MetroCluster, do NOT use the online workflow. If a site failover occurred during an active online import, write pass-throughs to the source array could fail which would lead to a verification failure and potential data loss. If the destination is MetroCluster, use the FLI offline process.
