Hi all,

I have my current MA which has iSCI QNAP storage disks. I want to move all data to a new MA and start using this one.

How is suposed to do this about storage disks? I just want to disconnect iscsi from old and connect to the new one but I dont know how to do it at Commvault.

Do I must use “share mountpath” or “move mountpath”? (no need to copy data, just present the disks at the new MA and start using it)

Im a bit confused about that. Im using Comvault 11.28

Thanks in advance

Joan

Hi Joan,

Thanks for reaching out for assistance.

To do this you can present the Storage on the New MA and within the Properties of the Mount Path on the Disk Library you can add a new Path for the new MA and then remove the old path.

Steps for adding MP Sharing:

If this dedupe data you will also need to move your DDB to the new MA:

Please let me know if you have further questions.
