Hello Team, I am trying to set up a shared datastore for multiple aem instances.  We are planning to have a common source of content (AEM assets). there will be multiple channels (Existing AEM applications running on different machines).

I would want each of these instances to be mounted to shared datastore (FileDatastore) and have their individual datastores migrated to the shared filesystems.

Can this be achieved?. My doubt is since datastores follow a particular folder and file naming patterns, will I run into a conflict where 2 different files across different AEM instances will have same name.

My AEM assets is running in 6.4 . One of the channel(AEM sites ) is in 6.4 and another channel(Again AEM sites) is in 6.2.

Regards,

Anand

Thanks Jorg.

I have not reached step 7. Right now only in step 1-4. Our business wanted this use case and they wanted to see if we can save diskspace. However I didn't  want to end up in a mess by proposing and working on the above mentioned architecture (steps), without getting an understanding and clarity on the functionality.

Your approach makes sense, and I think it's doable. Test your approach before, but I don't expect surprises. But just in case make sure that Adobe supports vets this approach as well.

Hello Jorg, Unfortunately whatever I doubt has happened it seems. Today  I could see that 2 different files (both across 2 different instance) has the same name and folder structure.

I havent heard anything from Adobe support yet .
