This feature is only available on SharePoint 2010. If a profile was initially configured to use EBS, there will be a link allowing for a one-time upgrade.
1.On the Edit Storage Profile page, click the Upgrade from EBS to RBS link.
A new window will open.
There are a few scenarios that could be encountered, keeping in mind that site collection scoped profiles can only use EBS.
If the profile is site collection scoped:
·and there is no parent profile (Content Database or Web Application scoped), then a new profile must be created that uses RBS and covers the scope of the site collection.
·and there is an EBS parent profile, that parent profile will be converted to RBS, the site collection profile will be inactivated and hidden, and the site collection will now fall under the scope of that parent profile.
·and there is an RBS parent profile, the site collection profile will be inactivated and hidden, and the site collection will now fall under the scope of that parent profile.
If the profile is Content Database or Web Application scoped, it will be converted to RBS. Any Site Collection scoped profiles that are children to the converted profile will be inactivated and hidden. Any Content Database profiles that are children will be converted, but will not be deactivated.
All content within the scope of the profile will be converted automatically.
Converted content will not be moved to the parent or grandparent profile endpoint. That can be done with a Bulk Migration job.
