I recently added a drive to my system, and told my main index to start moving things there when it reached 250G. I seem to be having errors in the log file:

11-19-2013 15:42:23.436 -0500 INFO  BucketMover - idx=main bucket=db_1343977251_1342804621_189 Firing async chiller: from='Z:\splunk\defaultdb\db' to='E:\splunk\defaultdb\colddb'
11-19-2013 15:42:23.436 -0500 INFO  DbMaxSizeManager - Bucket moved successfully (size: cur=260701782997 (248624MB,242GB), max=262144000000 (250000MB,244GB))
11-19-2013 15:42:23.436 -0500 ERROR BucketMover - aborting move because could not remove existing='E:\splunk\defaultdb\colddb\inflight-db_1343977251_1342804621_189' (reason='The operation completed successfully.')

I do not actually believe any data is being moved. any ideas?

Resolved by granting the splunk service account appropriate permissions to the new drive/folder.

There it is! This was a windows permission issue. The file structure was created successfully, by the service, but the service could not execute this until the new drive had appropriate permissions for the splunk service account.

Can you verify if the buckets were moved or not? Could you turn on Debug for the BucketMover channel and if you get more details for this? Permission problem?
