No. We are doing this so the new 8TB disk will be an empty xfs filesystem. The original files are still on disk5 in this new configuration. Then we can copy files from a reiser disk to this empty new 8TB disk and those copies will be files on an xfs filesystem. When we have completely copied all files from one of the reiser disks, we can reformat it and it will become an empty xfs filesystem ready to receive copies from other reiser disks so they can be reformatted. Repeat as necessary until all array disks have been reformatted xfs. At some point we will be able to shrink the array after copying all data from one of those reiser disks, then cache can go back in. I see from previous diagnostics it is already xfs so we are good there. Quote Link to comment
