How to split a PM instance

Hello,

I have a big PM instance managing many relationship which will be out of best practice limit soon.

I would like to split this instance in two smaller instances. Of course I would like to preseve relationship, backup, retention ... (as possible)

Secondary volumes use DSS (secodary dynamic sizing) and I want to preserve it too

What are possible methods to reach this goal (clone dfm db + purge, export/import relationship, ...)

Thanks in advance for your help

Regards

Christian

Yes. So if I understand your scenario, you need to split the single server managing say 500 dataset into 250 each ? Is that right ? If your  answer is yes

I will then send/upload you the procedure.

Hi Christian,

    I suggest you run this on a Linux rather than windows. Based on my experience with split at other customer places we found linux to be faster than windows.
