Rebalance Storage

Hi,

I am looking for the "rebalance storage" feature. Is it in this release?

I could remove a storage path and do a backfill with a wildcard but then it
will overwrite the userquota's.

Cheers,
JanJaap Dullink

Re: Rebalance Storage

JanJaap Dullink,
Rebalancing of storage did not make it into 2.0, but if your willing to test
some beta code that should be available in about a month. As for the ability
to preserve quotas should be available in maintenance releases due out
shortly.

thank you for patience,

Re: Rebalance Storage

Wohhhhhhh hold on a second... this thread rings alarm bells for me

Can I just clarify this in relation to what I have to do -

I need to move 17,000 users (approx 500 GB) from one system to another (new cluster/SAN).

1. If I remove the current paths from the policies and put the new paths in the policy and then do a FULL back fill, will the storage be moved ?

2. As part of the change, for one of the policies I'll be adding two paths and want the directories, whilst being moved, to be load balanced between the two. Will this work?

3. Some of the students have larger quotas than others (done via group memberships). Will these quotas be moved across?

thanks
Dave
