if you are running an All-In-One device you have to migrate the ELM Management DB before adding any storage pools.
You need to migrate your management database off of the ELM. Make sure that you do not migrate it to the same storage pool as your ELM logs. I am sorting out an ugly situation now because I made that mistake. Make sure that you have two separate storage pools: one for your management db and one for your ELM logs. Once you have the dedicated storage pool for the management db, you can migrate it from the ELM properties page. Go to "ELM Configuration" and click on the "Migrate DB" button. Then just pick the storage pool that you want.
That's correct esher72.
But just to clarify your response - based on my testing, management database can only be migrated to "Storage device" not "storage pool".
So based on the recommendation, there needs to be at least two "storage devices" - one for management database (min size 500gb) and one or more for ELM log retention.
Once the storage device is set for mgmt db, you can migrate db from ELM properties.
Storage pools can be defined from the second storage device for log retention.
Hi, Is it necessary to have atleast 500 GB free space for db migration, I've only 200 gb free space on test setup. Can I use it to migrate the data. As of now I am not able to see anything under devices. May not enough space could be the reason here.
I would imagine you do need it, seeing as in initial setup you must have 500gb free and allocated for the db, though I'm not sure of this.
I noticed this and that it's an older thread, so I was posting mainly to mention this;
The message from support for some time has been that CIFS is no longer supported (I may be behind the times with this in terms of this being published somewhere).
Thanks Jon, at least I will not waste efforts on troubleshooting CIFS.
