About upgrading from Veritas Backup Reporter to OpsCenter Analytics 7.1 on Windows and UNIX

The following upgrade paths are supported when you upgrade from VBR to OpsCenter 7.1:

  • VBR 6.6.1 -> OpsCenter 7.1

  • VBR 6.6.2 -> OpsCenter 7.1

The OpsCenter Installation Wizard automatically detects an older VBR installation. The OpsCenter installer only stops the existing VBR services. It does not uninstall your existing VBR installation. Do not uninstall VBR server after upgrading successfully to Symantec OpsCenter server software on a Windows platform. Read the following TechAlert if you want to uninstall VBR on Windows:

During upgrade, OpsCenter is installed and the older VBR database is saved and started. Note that a saved copy of the VBR database is used for upgrade. The data migration from the older VBR database to the new OpsCenter database starts after you successfully upgrade to OpsCenter. The data migration process happens for each master server. You can also view the data migration process from the OpsCenter logon page. The data migration process may take time depending on the data that has to be migrated.
