Move a database to another drive letter...

  1. Move a database to another drive letter...

    I have a database on one server, on drive E: and I wish to move it to
    another server on drive C:.

    What do I need to do?

    Thanks


  2. Re: Move a database to another drive letter...

    Let me add a little to this as it is not quite as simple as I've made
    it sound.

    I have a Progress 9.1C database running on one machine with the dB on
    the volume referred to as E:

    I wish to move this database to a new server, using drive C: and run it
    under OpenEdge 10.1.

    I would copy the database from E: to C: on the existing 9.1C server and
    "repair" it, then copy to the new one and upgrade, but drive C: on the
    old server does not have sufficient space for this.

    I could install 9.1C on the new server and run the repair there, but I
    wish to avoid that, if possible.

    Would it not be as simple as putting 10.1 on the old server, upgrade the database, then move to the new server and repair?

    Share the DLC directory on the old machine.

    Copy the database to it's new location, and update the .st file.

    cd \new-directory
    net use q: \\old-server\dlc
    set DLC=q:\
    q:\bin\prostrct database repair

    Well, that would shutdown the existing server, remove all, quick fall
    back, require all clients were upgrade before anyone could do anything,
    etc. I was sort of hoping to have the new server up, a few clients
    upgraded, some testing done, etc first.

    I shared the root progress folder on the 9.1C server. Then on the new
    server:

    C:\hsi\data>net use z: \\de-foxfire-01\progress
    The command completed successfully.

    C:\hsi\data>set DLC=z:\

    C:\hsi\data>z:\bin\prostrct gams1 repair
    PROGRESS PATCH Version 9.1C27 as of Thu Mar 13 11:08:29 EST 2003
    msgOpen: unable to open message file: PROMSGS

    C:\hsi\data>
