Overview

This article describes methods for migrating your archives between store points. You may want to migrate archives from one store point to another if:

  • you have moved a store point and want to move only some archives rather than all archives
  • you want to spread out load on store points without doing data balancing

Possible methods include migrating:

  • an individual device's archive
  • multiple archives from a store point
  • all archives from a store point

Considerations

  • You can only migrate archives between store points in the same destination. Alternatively, you can manually seed archives between destinations.
  • Migrating a single device archive as described below requires the SYSADMIN role.
  • Migrating multiple devices or emptying an entire store point requires either the Server Administrator or the SYSADMIN role.

Steps

Migrate a single device's archive

  1. Sign in to your authority server's administration console.
  2. Enable data balancing for the destination where the storage server is located and enable data balancing for the receiving store point.
  3. Click Devices.
  4. Click on the name of the device you want to migrate.
  5. Click the Archive action menu to the right of the destination status bar.
  6. Choose Migrate Archive.
  7. Select the target store point from the list.
  8. Click OK.

Migrate multiple archives from a store point

  1. Sign in to your authority server's administration console.
  2. Enable data balancing for the destination where the storage server is located and enable data balancing for the receiving store point.
  3. Navigate to Storage > Store Points.
  4. Click the value in the Stored column next to the store point from which you want to migrate archives.
  5. Check the boxes next to the archives you want to migrate.
  6. Click the action menu in the upper left.
  7. Choose Migrate Archive.
  8. Select the target store point from the list.
  9. Click OK.

Migrate all archives from a store point

To migrate all archives from one store point to another, turn off balancing on the store point you want to empty.

  1. Sign in to your authority server's administration console.
  2. Navigate to Storage > Store Points.
  3. Click on the name of the store point you want to empty.
  4. Click the action menu in the upper right.
  5. Choose Disable Balancing.

You may now migrate your device archives.

  1. Enable data balancing for the destination where the storage server is located and enable data balancing for the receiving store point.
  2. Navigate to Storage > Store Points and click on the name of the store point you want to migrate.
  3. Click the action menu in the upper right.
  4. Choose Migrate Device Archives.
  5. Choose to migrate archives to any available store points or to a specified store point.
  6. Click OK.
