Moving closed partitions without stopping services?
We're running EV 9.0.3 and due to an underlying disk problem, I'm moving about 2TB worth of closed partitions off one SAN LUN to another. According to http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH35742, I'm supposed to stop all EV services before copying the data.
Our policies do not allow deletion of data from EV archives and we do not regularly delete archives for leavers.
Collections on the closed partitions have either been 100% completed or, more recently, not enabled at all (for EVNearSync compatibility).
So I'm thinking that even with the vault store in read/write mode there should be no change to the data within the partitions.
As I'm trying to minimize the time EV is down, I was wondering if it would be ok to leave the vault store group in Read/Write mode and leave the EV services running while copying the partitions from the old to the new location. I would obviously still stop EV before changing the partition root path in SQL.
Let me know if what I'm suggesting is reasonable or not.
If not, I can make the whole Vault Store read only, but need to justify to management why this is necessary.
