DR for Backup exec media server
We are planning a DR for our Backup environment.Here we are using Backup Exec 2012.We have never done this before which is raising many concerns for us.Procedure is as follows.Please validate this and let me know whether this works or not.
1.We will be taking backup of DATA folder and Catalogs folder from our old media server (A).
2.We will install Backup exec 2012 on new server(B) which is having all configurations same as old media server, and rename it as old media server(A) thereby removing the old media server.
3.Then we will copy the DATA folder and Catalog folder of old backup server into the new server.Run Beutility.exe...which will sink the catalogs with new server.Which means now our server is ready.
I know it sounds like a pretty awkward plan.but i agree iam not much aware of this.Please help me out in this.
I have following questions arising in my mind.
1.Is this a correct plan?
2.Can we able to restore data by the new server which is backed up by old server?
3.How can i make sure the catalogs gets synchronised with the data?
Please provide any technotes detailing this plan.
