Jason Squires has a series on database migrations using dbatools. The first part covers capacity planning:
Great results, I now know that I cannot move the database from one server to another on any of the drives shown without expanding the drive volume. Even though this was an awesome output, I wanted more. I know my data and log drives that I wanted to focus on so I decided to dump everything into an array.
In this post, I am going to show you the steps that I decided to take to do this particular migration. This migration was going to be a bit different. I am merging two systems together, so I had to really think the process through and ensure I get everything I needed. I also did not want to rollback due to the systems being legacy and unsupported. Some of the hosts were going to be pushing storage limits so I had to ensure everything went flawlessly so I could decommission the legacy systems quickly.
Both of these have scripts and explanations attached, making it easy to follow along.
