RBS File Stream Drive full on the Database Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    The File Stream drive containing the Remote Blob Storage(RBS) on the Database Server is full with only 21.3 MB available on it. This is impacting the file upload functionality in SharePoint 2010.

    Is there any Data Retention Policy that can be applied in the above scenario so as to the size does not grown in future.

    Also is there any other way we can deal with this issue.

    Regards,

    Sudheer

  • Add more space to the volume or delete content from SharePoint.

  • Hi,

    We have already enhanced the drive space to 2TB and it cannot be expanded more than that due to operating system limitations.

    What is happening is everyday due to uploaded process approximately 1.5 GB of data is being uploaded in the RBS enabled File stream drive on Database Server.

    with that calculation our drive will run out of space with 1 month

    So can you let me know how to handle the above scenario?

    Regards,

    Sudheer

  • You're way out of supported territory. Microsoft's RBS has a _max cap_ of 200GB on a content database + associated RBS content size. It sounds like you should discontinue use of RBS and put the data back into databases.

  • Hi,

    I want to know if we can execute the command RBS.Migrate() directly on the production environment, its impact, does it require any downtime.

    We have missed running this step while we were installing RBS on the Database Server while we did migration of SharePoint Database in SharePoint Server 2010.

    Also our RBS enabled Filestream Drive on Database Servers is increasing @ rate of almost 4 GB per day. We want to avoid the drive space filling up rapidly by clearing deleted blobs. Please let us know of steps and procedures that needs to be performed in this regard.

    Regards,

    Sudheer

  • You need to migrate your data back into the content database. I would strongly suggest you do any import from RBS to the database outside of business hours as it will generate a significant amount of I/O.
