Importing expired tape from different master / version
Hello. I have some tapes that were written to by an old NB environment (last month, version 6.0, Windows Server 2003). Moved tape drive over as well. I had two sets of tapes that I was switching out - first set is relabeled and added to new inventory, second set has been left untouched.
I am now pointing this client to a new NB Master, running 188.8.131.52 on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise..My question is, if I need the data on the old tapes, is it better to try to point the client to old NB master, and re-inventory tapes / restore from there, OR
can this be done through my new Master? Basically, can my current Master import an expired tape from a different NB Master running 6.0.
Just wanted to be sure...seen various techdocs about importing expired tapes, but nothing regarding different versions and such..
