Equallogic Hit Kit and NCM

Hi there,

 

I'm currently planning a migration from Equallogic storage to Nimble (v2.0 installed).

 

The first application I'm looking at migrating is the Exchange 2010 environment, and currently the Exchange mailbox databases reside on an Equallogic PS6100 array connected via ISCSI to Windows 2008 R2 SP1 virtual machines.

 

Each Exchange server has the Equallogic Hit Kit (v3.5.1) installed which provides setup and configuration, MPIO capability, connection management, snapshot management, VSS provision etc.

 

Does anyone know or have come across any issues with running the Equallogic Hit Kit alongside the Nimble Windows Integration Toolkit (for setup and NPM) and the Nimble Connection Manager.

 

They sort of do similar things so I'd like to take advantage of both tools to optimize functionality during the migration while databases are residing on both types of storage.

 

I'll also be doing a similar process for migration of SQL and Sharepoint data and VMware datastores.
