[Deploying Sakai] Migrating from database storage to filesystem storage

Our Sakai installation stores binary content in the DB (approx 180GB now)
We've decided to migrate to FS storage.
I just want to make sure that the process I'm intending to go with is right:
1) Shut down tomcat
2) Add those 2 lines to sakai.properties:
bodyPath at org.sakaiproject.content.api.ContentHostingService=/path_to_nfs_share_mount/
convertToFile at org.sakaiproject.content.api.ContentHostingService=true
3) Start up the Tomcat
Now the questions:
How can I make sure that conversion process is finished?
Should I remove
"convertToFile at org.sakaiproject.content.api.ContentHostingService=true"
from sakai.properties after conversion is finished and restart Tomcat?
Any problems with 2 or more sakai nodes accessing this share at the
same time (currently we have 2 Sakai servers working on the same DB in
What could be approx. conversion time for 180GB DB?
Anything else I'm missing and can be useful?
