Tools > File Systems > Migrate Data

Use this page to either move data files from a source stripe group to other stripe groups, thus freeing the source stripe group so it can be removed from an existing StorNext file system, or to migrate metadata from one disk to another.

During data stripe group migration you indicate a source stripe group from which to move data.

The time it takes to complete the migration process depends on the amount of data being moved. When moving a data stripe group, the file system continues to run during the move. StorNext does not block any new read/write requests, or block updates to existing files on the source stripe group. All operations (including metadata operations) are handled normally, but no new writes are allowed to the source stripe group, which will be marked read-only.
