SAN Solution for SAP

Hi everyone,

We have multiple SAP instances (ECC6(DEV and PROD), CRM, Portal) installed on various systems. and we have an issue with growing database size which the attached disks are not able to satisfy. we would like to move to SAN(storage area network) environment for better storage solution. Can anyone help me in this. i would need to know how this can be achieved.

and Do we need to use hardware which the SAP is certified to run on?

Thank you all,

Vinod.

    You do not have to use SAP certified hardware, but it is definitely recommended.

    We use a fiber attached HP EVA solution for our SAN, which performs very well.

      Eric's approach is right, but make absolutely sure you have a good backup before you start.

      Also, make sure your DBA is involved so that he can verify the new file paths are properly configured in the DB instance.
