Managing Shares

Migrating a Share

As an administrator, you can migrate a share with its data from one location to another in a manner that is transparent to users and workloads.

Migrating data can be done for the following reasons:

  • Bringing down a physical storage device for maintenance without disrupting workloads.

  • Modifying the properties of a share.

  • Freeing up space in a thinly-provisioned back end.

To migrate data, see Configuring Migrations.
