Master server migration to new hardware
We are planning and testing our NBU master server (22.214.171.124 on HP-UX 11.31 IA 64, EMM and media server as well) to a new hardware with same OS.
I got a few questions somebody may help. thanks in advance.
1. we have around 600GB catalog. we are planning to run full backup in previous day, then on migration day, we will suspend backup jobs, run a incr backup. then reocver catalog from incr backup. But somehow the incr recovery failed with following. we have exactly same installation path on old and new master. same hostname but different IP.
Catalog recovery is in progress. Please wait...
ERR - Failed to find last backup image record for client mmdcux17, client_type 7, with policy Hot_Catalog_Backup and sched_type 4 (227)
Failed to recover catalog (227)
2. during new master installation, i found under /usr/openv, there are a few files .psummary .pseq and .phistory. what are these files for? can we delete them?
3. on old and new master, we have different FS mount points. we try to origanize the FSs better. Wish these changes will not cost any issue.
old master: /usr/openv, /usr/openv/netbackup/db
new master: /usr/opevn, /usr/openv/netbackup/db/images, /usr/openv/logs
4. we have two tape libraries configured on old master/media, one is decidated to master/media, another is shared with another media server with SSO option. afte migration, i assume we have to reconfgiure them on new master after we migrated FC zones. right?
