We are running merge replication, using a separate distributor machine that has the repldata share .
Due to increase in data (snapshot sizes) we need to move this folder/share to another drive, which we have allocated and formatted.
As we are running 24/7 i need a safe method to re-locate this share.
I was thinking of stopping the sql agent on the distributor, renaming/remove the existing share (stop sharing..), name the new share to repldata with correct permissions, copy data from old to new share and then start sql agent again ..
Would this work ???
Or is there a better solution..
