Expand IDB to another disk

Jump to solution

Hi! I have a Data Protector 9.09 in a Windows Server 2012 R2. All core files are under the same folder tree in one disk only. I was wondering if I can expand the new IDB catalog files to another disk in the same server. For example, my IDB is on d:\omniback... Can I EXPAND the db80 files to another disk, such as F:\omnicatalog? Thanks for your help.

Hello @jcorrea,

DCBFs are consuming the most capacity in the IDB. Check omnidbutil -list_dcdirs and create a additional DCBF folders on separate disks as needed. You could also move DCBF files from one configured directory to another (not the directory itself). You need to run omnidbutil -remap_dcdir afterwards to make the IDB aware of the change.
