Migrate Backupexec2012 storage

Created: 01 Jun 2013 | 4 comments

Hello all !
 

I searched for this issue a lot but i couldn't find exactly what i need,

it's pretty simple, we bought a new NAS and we connected it to the backupexec server (via iSCSI) , now we need to migrate all previous backups (B2D) files to the new storage which is also B2D, the backups are around 3.5TB in total size

Any ideas how can we do it ?

 

Thank you in advance

...best bet here is to run a duplicate job to the new B2D that you created. BE will then have knowledge of what was done with the files, and what they are for on the new B2D. Don't just copy them.

Thanks!

In the Storage tab, click on the old storage and then right-click on the backup sets to delete them.
