Q. I have quotas and file screens defined using File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) on my Windows Server 2003 R2 cluster. What's the correct way to migrate them to a Windows Server 2008 R2 cluster?

A. The standard cluster migration wizard won't export FSRM quotas and file screens. To migrate the FSRM-specific configuration, you need to use the export and import capabilities of the FSRM command line tools, which are cluster compatible.

For example, to export the quotas, use

dirquota template export /file:c:\temp\quotas.xml

To export the file screen file groups and templates, use

filescrn filegroup export /file:c:\temp\filegroups.xml
filescrn template export /file:c:\temp\filescrn.xml

You can run the same commands to import, just replace export with import.
