Migrating Backup Exec 2010 to 2012 to a new Server/Hardware
I'm in the process to migrate our Backup Server from Symantec 2010 to the latest version 2012 to a new server/hardware with different server name.
What are the steps to ensure all the backup logs/historical reports are migrated to the new server?
Is it better to go with fresh installation on the newer server and then I migrate the DB from old to the New Server?
- Install SQL on the new Server
- Migrate the DB from old Server
- Attach the DB to the new Server
- Install Symantec Exec 2012 and point it to the old DB
Is it possible to install it on different server name and latter on I can change the name back to match the old server?
Appreciate your tips/suggestions.
