FIlr 2 upgrade - can I shrink a /vastorage

I know to wait for the release next week but I'm trying to get my ducks in a row before.

Our large clustered 1.2 system was based on a large non-clustered system. So I have 2 Filr Web Agents with drastically over-sized /vastorage disks. They both show 1.1GB used on disks that are at least 60x the size. Can I do anything to avoid re-creating the over-allocation?

thanks,
Andrew

Re: FIlr 2 upgrade - can I shrink a /vastorage

If you have a clustered deployment (meaning your data resides in /vashare), you can probably update just one of the two app servers to 2.0, then add a second app server as a new node.

For shrinking the /vastorage, I can suggest that you a new disk to the appliance of the desired size. Copy over whatever is on /vastorage to this new disk (clone). Then try using this disk as your /vastorage on the 2.0 appliance.

Haven't tested the above 😐

Thanks for the reply Khurram. I will try and test it as it makes sense to me.
