If, for any reason, you choose not to use SnapManager as your data management tool, you can migrate your databases back to local disks.
To migrate your databases back to local disks, complete the following steps.
From the SnapManager Actions pane, select Configuration Wizard Option Settings > Enable databases to be migrated back to local disk.
Note: By default, the Configuration wizard does not list any local drives unless you explicitly enable the migration to a local disk feature.
Launch the SnapManager Configuration Wizard.
Click Next at the Welcome screen.
In the "Select a database, file group or file to move" screen, select the database that you want to move back to local disk from the Database Location Results list.
In the database list, select the database or databases you just re configured.
Note: In the "Select a Database..." list, the Disk column for this entry lists Reconfig instead of the database location.
In the Disk Selection Pane, select a local drive, and then click the <=> button.
In the Select SnapInfo File screen, click Next.
Note: Both SnapInfo directories must remain on the LUNs, SMB shares, or VMDKs on which you placed them during the original migration. They cannot be moved to local disk.
In the Database Migration Options screen, click Next.
In the Completing the Configuration Wizard screen, click Finish.
Click Start Now to migrate your databases back to local disk.
