Recently I had to move my SoftGrid data from the local physical test box to a production SAN environment. It’s better that way. Also using a DFS path rather than a hard coded path. Doing this was actually a lot easier than I thought. Here’s all I had to do.
1. Get SAN storage of course. If you don’t have a SAN, no worries, you can still move the data just as easy following the instructions below.
2. Make sure you have a shared directory setup with read access to all users that you want to use SoftGrid enabled applications.
3. On the SoftGrid server(s) stop the SoftGrid service.
Change the string value for ‘SOFTRICITY_SOFTGRID_CONTENT_DIR’
5. Start the service
