Changing a Folder’s Storage Pool Affinity

You can use Xsan Admin to change a folder’s affinity so all new files placed in the
folder are stored on a new storage pool.

To change a folder affinity:


In Xsan Admin, select File Management in the SAN Assets list.


Select the folder, choose Set Affinity from the Action (gear) pop-up menu, and then

choose the new affinity tag.


Click OK.

Files in the folder aren’t moved to the new storage pool. To move the files that were in
the folder to a storage pool with the new affinity tag, use the


command in

Terminal. For information and an example, see the


man page.
