Our organization is in the middle of a migration from Dell Equallogic SAN to EMC VNX SAN. We have numerous clustered and standalone servers where we need to move data from volumes/drives hosted on the EQL to the VNX. CDR seemed like a perfect use for this vs XXCOPY, etc.
So far, I have set up a test server where I set the source and destination as different drives on the same server and it seemed to work fine. Of particular concern to me was that the destination files were exactly the same (modified/accessed time stamps, etc) and this seemed to be the case.
I wanted to ask if anyone had used CDR in this scenario and if so, how did it go. Are there any potential complications or other considerations I would want to be aware of? I do not see this type of replication listed in supported configurations but again, it seems to work just fine.
