You will have to do this for each group individually in the organization perspective.

Another option is to use the volume management perspective and the volume monitor view, where you can list all volumes of a FSC and all groups using the individual volume. You can then change the volume when selecting the group.

Great Thanks all gentleman,

 

I have figured out one more way. Please review that can we take this as feasible solution?

 

1)      Export all groups from TC.

 

               Use “plmxml_export” utilities for export all groups from Tc.

 

              Example: - “$TC_ROOT\bin>plmxml_export -u=infodba -p=infodba -g=dba -xml_file=D: \xyz.xml -class=Group”

 

 

  2)  How to change the default volume of those all groups in TC.

 

We have to use “-transfermode” in between above example command for export xml file with all content group attributes.

 

Regards,

Rathore

You can use the make_user utility to change the default volume of a group. This would be much easier than your PLMXML suggestion I think.

agree for make_user utility, very easy to manipulate for users bulk update..

I came across this thread and have a question regarding make_user utility.

- Once the new volume assigned to multiple groups, old volume still shows the entries of groups in Accessors list?

Will this cause any problem?

Also is there anyway i can remove these entries from old volume?

Newly created physical files will be created in the newly assigned volume.

Existing files will still reside in the old volume, so the access list can be kept as is, which is the default behaviour.

You can edit the access lists through Organization => Volumes, but I would just keep them as is, since there are usually no problems with them.

I've heard that modifying a file in the old volume will actually put the revised file in the same volume instead of creating it in the new volume. By removing the accessors from the old volume it would force the file to be saved to the new volume. Any truth to it? What is your understanding?

I guess once you check in it gets stored in new volume. Will test and confirm.
