Move EV 10 Partition Questions
I am about to move some EV Partitions from a UNC path to local drives and have seen the usual tech note : http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH35742 which is fine and straight forward (even though the method uses SQL scripts and the video edits the tables manually - which i prefer!)
The system i am working on is EV 10.0.3 with the rollup package applied
But I have a couple of questions about the process and about an another column in the SQL Table which i hope someone can clarify
1. If says to make sure that the Watchfile count is zero first. Is this just best practice (as always data and sql should be backed up first) or is there something deeper here. All partitions being moved are closed and all data has been replicated to new volumes using robocopy so wondering if there is something i need to worry about here - the backups do not use archive bits only trigger files here.
2. Looking at the PartitionEntry table i see the PartitionRootPath column that needs to be edited - so here i change my current UNC paths to the local drives - i am happy with that, the way it has always been so nice and straight forward! But when i scroll along further I also see a RemotePartitionRootPath.
Here my current UNC entries are the same as in the first column but the local ones use a coded type of unc path - as an example:
J:\Enterprise Vault\Journal Vault Store \Ptn13 shows as \\myevserver\EVPartition01ce41d197d370f0$
My question is does EV change the RemotePartitionPath entry after I have edited the PartitionRootPath one?
Thanks all for any advice - nice to be asking questions rather than answering them!
