Using MERGECONTENTDBS with large sites

  Asked By: Nicole    Date: Mar 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1705

Anyone having any luck using this operation with large sites? We have a team
site that is roughly 27GB that we're trying to move to a new content DB but
we're experiencing time-outs. We've tried pre-expanding the DBS and modified
the SQL connection timeout values but we're not making any progress. If anyone
has any tips on getting this to work.

you probably want to lock all site collections (in sharepoint) on both content
databases. you are probably experiencing locking on the sql  Server. you may have
to use a third party tool to migrate large  site collections.

google sharepoint sql blocking / locking and take a look.
