    You mean you are moving the file store from one server to another NAS.

    Make sure you stop all the BO services before moving the File store. Stop the services, Move the file store to different NAS.

    Start the BO services and run RDT tool to check if there is any inconsistencies or orphaned objects. And also validate reports from Launchpad

    I assume you're referring to the FRS? if so, there are a few different ways to do it. Here's one:

    1. Make sure that the service accoun that the SIA is running as has full control over the new NAS location.
    2. In CMC, disable and then stop all services except for the CMS
    3. Copy the FRS to the new location. Validate if necessary.
    4. In CMC, open the properties of each Input FRS and Output FRS - set the File Store Directory and Temporary Directory to the new location, as appropriate.
    5. Start up the FRSes. If you want to be really careful, check the logs at this point to confirm that there are no errors.
    6. Start up remaining services.
    7. Test. If you can at least open a WebI report, then you know that the IFRS is able to read from the NAS.

    You can run the Repository Diagnostic Tool (reposcan) to check for any errors. But if you decide to do this, I would suggest running it on the old NAS first. Then you will know if any reported errors were pre-existing or related to the move.

    The reason I suggest leaving the CMS running is that you will want to change the IFRS/OFRS settings while those services are down, and you need the CMS to be up in order to do so. Alternatively, you could disable all services, change the IFRS/OFRS settings, shut everything down, do the copy, then bring everything back up.
