As others have pointed out, we don't really know which hardware and software
resources you've got at disposal.

- Most generic solution would be to use plexes to migrate the data.
- You'll need to mess around with zoning and masking on the SAN side
regardless of what option you take
- BCVs are going to be your friend if you're short on execution time, but
plentyful on planning time (and if you're just copying data within the same
- Maybe SRDF is an option here too if you're moving from one array to
- Joining and Splitting DGs would be my preference via either plex copies or
snapshots, but VxVM version might not allow you to do this natively (and
from what I recall you gotta  have licenses for certain types of snaps?).
- You could perhaps also do a ufsdump/vxdump or restore from your backups
infrastructure (this probably won't work for the raw vols, but depends how
it's backed up exactly).

All in all you'll need to look at the details and timeframes carefully
before deciding.
