There is to be no impact the primary and standby sites while this is performed once the new storage is made available to the primary and standby nodes.
2. The diskgroup names in place at the primary and standby sites are going to remain the same.
3. There is no requirement to have the old storage remain in place in the environment and a second copy of the primary and standby database kept on this storage.
