Can one iSCSI target be used between two servers in a server migration preserving the NTFS file system and file rights?
Posted on 2008-10-22
Currently we are using a Windows 2003 R2 server / DC that hosts our file shares on an iSCSI drive mounted to that server.
All users access these file shares by using a DFS namespace, so the backend of these mappings to the real shares can be changed easily.
In the next weeks we are planning to use a new DC that also will host the DFS namespaces and must also take over the iSCSI target at the end of our server migration.
My question is really if NTFS will still function right and if it will not be damaged when i change the iSCSI to the newer server?
the SID's of the folder and files will still be the same..
I guess attaching the iSCSI target to both servers at the same time is dangerous and may damage the flle system or am i wrong?
Because these migration steps are taking outside of working hours, read and/or write errors, file locks should not happen i think.
Thanks in advance.
