Classic SE Migration
The Classic SE (Storage Element) is basically a GridFTP server with information publishing.
Migrating to DPM
The following link contains LCG's instructions for [migrating a Classic SE]. After the migration the sfn:// LFNs are still valid when talking to DPM's gridftp server.
Decommissioning a Classic SE
It is also possible to shut it down. For details, please refer to the general SE_Shutdown procedure.

- Yves Coppens at Birmingham has migrated a Classic SE to DPM by performing a YAIM install of DPM on the Classic SE box and then running the migration tool. His experiences can be found here Migration_from_a_classic_to_a_DPM/SRM_SE.
