Backup Exec System Recovery Manager 8.5 supports the backup management of existing installations of Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 8.x and 7.0 on client computers. To bring such computers under backup management, you need to install Management Control 8.x using an Easy Installer.
After Management Control is installed, it publishes information back to the Backup Exec System Recovery Manager server and the following occurs:
If the backup job specifies a network destination for saving the recovery points, you must reconcile the destination. You reconcile the destination by specifying the proper network credentials in Backup Exec System Recovery Manager. The backup job becomes functional in Backup Exec System Recovery Manager and continues to store recovery points on the designated network share. Otherwise, you can choose to delete the destination and any backup jobs that are associated with it. You can then create or assign a new backup job for the affected computers.
If the backup job includes the use of a recovery point password, you must reconcile the job from the console by specifying the correct password. The backup job becomes functional in Backup Exec System Recovery Manager and continues to apply password protection to recovery points. Otherwise, you can choose to delete the backup job, and then assign a new backup job to the affected computers.
If the imported recovery points were created with password protection, you must reconcile each recovery point in the console by specifying the original password. It ensures that the imported recovery points are accessible from Backup Exec System Recovery Manager. It also ensures that you can restore a recovery point with the password, if necessary.
Any command files that are associated with imported jobs are not copied to the server. Instead, you must edit the backup job. You can either specify the necessary command files that you want to run or remove the files from the backup job.
