I'm soon to be migrating our depot from a SCSi-bus/SATA-drive array over
to a FC-bus/SAS-drive array for performance and scalability gains.
Source is a Windows 2003 x86 and destination is a Windows 2008 x64.
The depot is currently running at about 3.5Tb and I expect it to be up
to ~4Tb by the time I can perform the migration.
I've read through the documentation for this process
r) and feel comfortable with everything.
I was hoping to ask three questions:
1. From the size of the depot can anyone estimate how long the
pre-copy verify will take
2. From the size of the depot can anyone estimate how long the
post-copy verify will take (if diff from above)
3. Has anyone performed this procedure and have any advice or tips!
Thanks as always!
