Hi All,

My current EV VaultStore is configure using the Physical RDM attached to the VM based on LUN presented by the Storage Array.

So my current question is that, how can I migrate them all ~17 TB across 10+ drive letters into the new low cost storage server CIFS share ?

errr robocopy and drive mapping?

unless you own a special file copying tool, i would use robocopy. the safest way would be to completely take EV offline, run your robocopy, then edit the vault store partition locations in SQL to point to the new share. each partition you have know on their own drive letter can be a subfolder of the new CIFS share. for example \\evstorage\VS01\PTN01, \\evstorage\VS01\PTN02, etc

Why not just map the drive letters though? then you dont have to edit anything in the database

Cool, so in this case, the EV Vault Store partition files can be just migrated using the robocopy through Windows Server RDP session and then some SQL server script magic to change the path into the new location with UNC mapping.

Kind regards,

exactly. and keep in mind how you plan to back everything up when deciding how you lay out the partitions on your new storage device.
