Extended capabilities are provided to move to different storage (disks) for an Accelerator or to move an Accelerator to another CPC or LPAR.
A move is accomplished by specifying new and additional tags in the JSON configuration file of an existing Accelerator. Specify an additional "runtime_environment" for a CPC or LPAR move. Specify an additional "storage_environment" to configure a storage migration. The tag "storage_environment" replaces the previous "primary_storage" and "storage_maps" tags.
Examples of corresponding use cases:
- Manual HA/DR scenarios (where disks are mirrored by another component and manual LPAR start is acceptable or automation is implemented differently)
- Tests on a flash copy of the data
- Storage subsystem migration with new device IDs
