Be aware that you cannot share files, though, in the same way as you might do with productivity software (word
processor, spreadsheet, etc). Domino is not peer-to-peer; therefore, this SAN segment should ONLY be accessed by the one Domino server.
To move the files (let's say the server sees the SAN as "E:\" drive), create a folder on E: called Domino (i.e., E:\Domino\), shut down the Domino server, move the Mail directory from underneath the Domino data root to this folder (so it becomes E:\Domino\Mail) and create a directory pointer in the Domino data directory that points to this new path.
- Create a text file in the data root
- In the text file, put ONE line "E:\Domino\Mail" (without the quotes)
- Rename the text file mail.dir
- Restart the Domino server
