Image Mode Export Limitations with FS9500 in Replication layer Mode

    Hello,

    I'm planning to migrate out of an SVC and replace with an FS9500, would like to confirm if the following scenario is possible since we don't have a test environment.  Perform Image mode Export migrations from a legacy SVC (8.3.x) to a new unused FS9500  (8.5.x) running in replication system layer.  

    Thank You.

    For export to image mode from SVC, I think FS9500 needs to be in "storage" layer.

    If FS9500 needs to stay in "replication" mode, you could try to create partnership between SVC and FS9500 and then via metro/global mirror replicate from SVC to FS9500

    Grts,
