Block size issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am not sure where exactly to post my issue, so i thoguht the general area would work for now.  Please let me know if I should post this somewhere else....here goes:

    I have a SQL 2008 cluster on Windpows 2008 R2.  I had a new admin add the SAN drives and they were never configured for 64K block size as recommended.  Once the cluster was built, the SQL install was completed and installed to one of the SAN drives.  now we have to reformat all of the drives and make them 62k block size.

    Is it possible to cut and paste the SQL directories to another drive, format said drive, then cut and paste the directories back?

    if not...

    Is there a recommended procedure or tool available?


    Do i have to just move forward with a complete uninstall/reinstall of SQL server?
