Abstract: IBM Storwize V7000 Unified version 1.5 introduces various new features. Specifically, administrators have greater flexibility in controlling how access permissions are handled by the system with this new version. This allows for optimizing the logical configuration of Storwize V7000 Unified to provide better compatibility with Windows environments.

This document first explains the newly introduced configuration options, and explains how they influence handling of access permissions. It is shown how different configuration options result in different behavior for clients. Afterwards, different migration scenarios are outlined on a high level, before concrete guidelines are provided for implementation of such scenarios. External dependencies and risks are explained in detail, where appropriate.
