You should expect that everything that the SAN sees will be different. The mainframe should see exactly the same things it does now, assuming the SAN administrator is able to figure out what the new WWPNs for the z114 are going to be. That would be a tedious job if it weren't a push-pull. Since it is a push-pull, I'm not sure how they 're going to be able to do it in a reasonable amount of time.
