is it necessary to run preparetomove with mergecontentdbs in same farm? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to split 500 GB Content file into 10 separate files using mergecontentdb command within same farm.

    Do I need to run preparetomove command before running mergecontentdb and what will be the problems if I will not run preparetomove command.

    after running mergecontentdb command  (10 times) I want to delete the old content database file. will it effect on user permissions or data?

    thanks & Regards,
