Storage migration Service - inventory not showing all volumes

Copper Contributor

I'm trying to migrate a windows 2008r2 file server cluster to a windows 2019 cluster. The inventory of the 2008 cluster shows only one volume of the 10 volumes. In the share list all the shares from all volumes are listed. 

Because there is only one volume in the inventory  I'm not able to migrate the other volumes . 


Any ideas .....

Thank You

@frank blonk Hi Frank.

Did you have fix that error. I have a same problem and still don't find a solution.
Can you share a solution for me.

Thank you very much

Hi Tao ,
No , I did not find a way to fix that error. I connected the virtual disk to a new server and copied the server roles to the new server.

Oh, i know that solution. But i don't see any public document of MS when copy cluster role from 2008R2 to 2019.
Thank you for sharing

I have the same issue migrating from physical cluster OS is 2012R2 to virtual cluster OS is 2022.
In my inventory it shows only 3 out of 7 devices.

Did somebody find out any solution to fix the issue?

@MRSrun If you plan to migrate file server role.
I recommend you not use storage migration service, it has a lot errors.
Just use robocopy to copy file, NTFS permission.
Use command Get-SmbShare and New-smbshare to export and import Share permission.
