I have one content DB (Source content DB) with 500+ site collections in it. Recently i have moved all site collections to 10 different content DBs (using
Move-SPSite command) in order to improve performance. My question is: What the command
Move-SPSite actually does?
Will it copy the site collections to destination DB or migrate? because after Moving site collections, when i go into source content DB in
dbo.AllWebstable, i can still see all the site collections there. How can we reduce the size of source content DB after moving?
Move-SPSitecommand reduces size on source content DB?
- Whats is shrinking? what its benefit and how can we shrink source DB using powershell?
- After Move operation, if i create new site collection, where it will go? in old source content DB or in newly created content DB?
