A few days ago I posted about problems with Storage VMotion. Unfortunately it turned out that these problems appeared on an unsupported configuration. In the comments on my post, Bob Slovick wrote the following:

That post refers to a person that is using the Qlogic HBAs with the IBM ES800, where table 8 of the Storage/SAN compatibility guide specifically states that only Emulex HBAs are supported for the IBM ES800.
Storage VMotion is very sophisticated technology and depends on using qualified storage configurations. If you use unqualified/unsupported configurations, it is unfair to criticize the technology, as you are knowingly in uncharted waters.”
I therefore decided to remove / rewrite this post. Thanks Bob for pointing it out to me!
