Creating Essbase Spanned Drive

User Rating:  / 0

This movie will illustrate how to create a spanned drive in Essbase.  A spanned drive tells Essbase to store the data and index files on another drive than the default drive.  You could do this if you main data drive is getting close to full and your server has another drive with plenty of space.  The primary drive is still used for the outline and other Essbase object files.  Depending on the install, Essbase might not use multiple drives for storing data.  By incorporating this exercise you can more greatly use the storage capacity of your servers and reduce the risk of runninng out of disk space.
