Re: New SAN - remapping volumes - naming scheme

curious what your current and new san are?
brand?
technology?
price?

I primarily use iSCSI everywhere these days.

My vm volume naming is simple:
vmvol01, vmvol02, etc...
vdivol01, vdivol02, etc...

For VMs that have iSCSI connected through the OS:
exchvol01, exchvol02, etc...
sqlvol01, sqlvol02, etc...
fsvol01, fsvol02

For the fileserver, I name each LUN to the resource or department
marketingvol01, financevol01, etc...

The problem is that eventually the requirement and naming convention that you thought is good becomes outdated.

Then the cycle starts all over again

Simple is always easier to maintain, especially when your spreadsheets are massive. Me though, I prefer to start with a number.
