I have two dg's on each node active.

Rather add luns from new storage to existing dgs, mirror volumes. wait for mirrors to sync, then remove original mirror plexes.

Veritas Operations Manager (VOM) has functionality built on top of the SF capabilities to enhance the migration process futher. For more info and download:

Yes.   vxevac is volume manager layer command and it will work. I have just tested it on a 2 Node VCS Cluster (5.0 MP3 Version) Oracle RAC setup and I was able to evacuate disk without any problem.
