To someone who has never dealt with the backup/restore stuff.. not to mention 
taking over a previously setup cluster.. it is exceedingly onerous :(

Those docs seem geared primarily towards doing backup and restore of a 
hosted_engine where nothing is changing.
it would be really helpful to have docs where the goal is changing the 
environment for the hosted engine.

At one point I stumbled across a reference to that sort of thing, but 
unfortunately I cannot find it again.

The "long-winded" way is the only way I know of doing it.

Providing you plan in advance I don't think it's really that onerous. And it 
means you have a stable system going forward...

I currently have a self-hosted engine, running in a dedicated ISCSI storage 
domain. 
I'd like to change the backend hardware for the storage. 
 
i think there's some longwinded and complicated method of shutting down the 
engine, backup, creating a NEW one, restore, and whoknowswhat. 
 
I was wondering though, if maybe there's a way to just add an iscsi lun to the 
storage domain, and tell ovirt, "Hey, move the stuff over to that other lun" 
? 
 
Ive added the new lun already :) havent found a reference to move the files' 
residence though. 
 
If it helps, my end goal is to remove that lun completely.
