Re: New SAN - remapping volumes - naming scheme
Not sure how large your environment is, but ours might be small in comparison.

You can always just throw more disks online or send it to the cloud
Small today, big tomorrow!
I always have a tendency to think long term and when I started out many ages ago, I'd always debated with people that their 'clever' naming scheme loses out to my simple naming scheme (ie. their AD001NY, AD002NY, AD001NJ vs. my SERVER001, SERVER002) but as I gained more experience I realized that it's easier to sort a spreadsheet when you start with a number (unless you're a crazy man using hex).
Sometimes, if possible, we try to tie asset tags with IP addresses if possible.
