Moving Backup Exec 2012 Server to other hard drive
Dear all, I need a solution.
Last two week's a tried to move my backup exec media server (OS - Windows Server 2008 r2 sp1) from SAN system disk (Now my media server system drive is a lun on remote disk srorage with connected over SAN network) to local SATA hard drive.
I tried to use SDR of server itself, but no luck - it doesn't load correct drivers for my devices.
I tried to use Windows Server backup - no luck again.
All because of the system SAN drive..
So, I decide to make a fresh install of my server (install same OS to local SATA hard drive and install Symantec BE 2012) and move all settings (copy Data and Catalogs directories).
But I don't understand how it will "remember" my storages (I have one disk storage over SAN and one robotic tape library over SAN). These storages contain my backup sets fo the last year.. I don't have to lose them. And I want it work correctly after migration.
I think I have to install Windows, install drivers for my storages (for disk based storage - give the same drive letter), install Sym BE, stop all BE services and copy DATA and CATALOGS directories from old server. Than start BE services.
Thank's in advance.
