Migrate storage for SQL Cluster using snapmirror

I have multiple Microsoft 2000/2003 Clusters running SQL 2000 and am required to migrate all databases to new storage.


One option is:


Snapmirror all the existing volumes then.


Stop SQL services

Update the snapmirror

Break the Snapmirror relationship to make the mirrored data read / write

Present the mirrored LUNs to the SQL cluster

Assign the new LUNs the drive letters of the existing LUNs

Start up SQL


My concern is that there may be an issue with Cluster didk signatures etc.


Has anyone done this? Is there a flaw to this approach?
