Backup Exec media server transfer 2003 to 2008 R2
We currently have Symantec Backup Exec 12.5 installed on a Windows Server 2003 media server. I would like to transfer this installation to a new media server on a Windows Server 2008 R2 box, where I have installed an evaluation copy of Backup Exec 12.5 (to which the licences will be transfered over). I followed the plan laid out in the following support article "TECH37072" located here:
I am able to copy the media server configuration from the existing copy of Backup Exec in to a .cfg file using BeUtility, however when I come to apply this config file to the new media server (2008 R2) the screen freezes on "Apply copied media server configuration to media servers" with a progress of 0%. From here on it indefinately hangs, I recently allowed this to run over the weekend.
Are there any pre-requisites that need to be carried out before the config file can be applied?
Any help would be appreciated.
