We're planning to migrate a couple of NetWare servers with a considerable amount of data to new Windows Server 2003 R2-based systems.
As we use Salvage regularly under NetWare, one of the features that we're planning to implement in the new environment is Volume Shadow Copy. However, I don't have much experience of this feature and how I go about sizing it.
On each of the file servers we plan to create a dedicated partition (or disks) for shadow copy. As a rule of thumb, what size does this need to be? For instance, does it need to be identical to the data that is being copied, or 1.5 times as large, or 3 times as large?
Any advice, guidelines or useful links would be much appreciated.
