DNS Pointers for File Share Migration
Posted on 2011-04-27
I'm currently planning to migrate a large file share from a physical server into our virtual environment, but due to the importance of the data and the sheer number of applications and scheduled tasks that read and write data into this share it is not feasible to correct all the scripts over the course of the weekend. Is it possible that DNS pointers could be used to direct any traffic meant for the share on the old server to the new servers share. I believe that this can be done for name resolution, but we have Unix servers that map drives through IP address as well.
Thanks in advance
