SMSQL migration

[ Edited ]

From what I see in the admin manual, it is possible to migrate data onto NetApp storage with SMSQL.

Is it a "move" operation (source is deleted), or a "copy" operation (source remains intact)?

I saw a sentence that say you can specify whether to delete the source, but most references indicate a "move" only.

Hi Walt,

You can definitely tick the relevant box, so the source database files won't get deleted.

I actually never tried this, so not 100% sure, but I think the original database will be dismounted though (you can't have two databases with the same name under the same instance of SQL).
