The Org I work for has it's Qlik Sense Deployment on AWS. When it was deployed it was setup with a local share on a separate drive, authorization for an FSx volume had yet to be approved.
Several weeks and months later FSx has been approved and we have the volume and ready to migrate the data.
What is the exact process to migrate everything in our share?
Here's what I am thinking: Mount the volume, give it a drive letter of E:. Copy everything over. Make E: (Current Share) offline, change the drive letter of the FSx Volume from E: to D:. Hopefully mitigating any errors as Qlik is still looking at that drive.
Note that in the section "Configuring Qlik Sense to use the new share", instead of the serviceclustertool we have now a new tool called QlikSenseUtil, located at C:\Program Files\Qlik\Sense\Repository\Util\QlikSenseUtil.
To update your Qlik Sense share with QlikSenseUtil, you will just need :
1) press connect to Database and put your postgres super user password
The best way to move share would be to copy all your share folders to to the new drive. And use the "QlikSenseUtil" tool to change the shared path and point it to the new share. You do not necessarily need to mount it, you can use the full UNC path provided all the credentials/access is all set up for the account that runs the Qlik Sense services.
You can find the unit tool at the following location:
It should look like the screen shot attached. You will need your repository superuser password to login into the PostgreSQL DB. Once connected, go to "Server Cluster" tab and change the paths for the all the shared folders and point them to the new drive and save. That would do the job.
Hope this helps.
