Metalogix does not have time approximations for the EBS to RBS conversion, as much of it is based on environmental variables. However, you may refer to the recommendations below on how to convert EBS to RBS.
Note: It is recommended not to modify any externalized files while the conversion is being processed for safety precaution. You may set the site to 'Read-only' status if the profile to be converted is not active or disabled. If the profile is actively used, EBS to RBS conversion will fail. To disable the profile, go to Application Management > Storage Profiles, open each profile and set Externalize content BLOBs to NO, then save it.
- Upgrade to the latest version of StoragePoint prior to the EBS to RBS conversion. You may refer to the StoragePoint Advanced Installation Guide documentation for the upgrade instructions.
- Open Central Administration > Storage profiles, click the Jobs link in the Advanced Configuration column of the desired Storage profile, click on the Analyze & Estimate button on the StoragePoint BLOB Recall section to determine the amount of externalized BLOBs. Another alternative is to run the following SQL scripts against the content databases under the scoped web application:
SELECT COUNT(*) FROM AllDocs WHERE DocFlags & 65536 = 65536
SELECT COUNT(*) FROM AllDocVersions WHERE DocFlags & 65536 = 65536
Note: These SQL scripts are used to get the exact total amount of externalized EBS BLOBs from the content database.
- Begin with the EBS to RBS conversion on the Storage Profile that has the least amount of externalized data based on the result from the SQL scripts above. From there, you can get an approximate time of conversion on the other profiles, as well as which has the bigger amount of externalized BLOBs. Please refer to the following documentations below for instructions on how to convert from EBS to RBS.
