As discussed earlier, the data should be stored on the replicated file system. Therefore, we use the following locations for each component.
|Master DataBase Files||/datakeeper/mssql/data|
|Master Log File||/datakeeper/mssql/xlog|
First, create directories on node-a.
Relocate the Master database to the newly created directories with the /opt/mssql/bin/mssql-conf tool as follows:
Start the MSSQL server.
Once the database is started, you will see some files created on the folders specified earlier.
Now the instance can be stopped.
