NB migration - the hard way 6.5.6 to 7.5 - questions
let me introduce the 'challenge' i'm facing: i need to migrate our old NB 6.5.6 running on a W2k3 server to a new hardware and to W2k8 - so far so good, but i am also changing hostname and domain - no way around that
from what i found in posts here, there is NO way to keep the catalogue info alive, when changing hostname - except by getting consulting services, which is no option unfortunately
so, i'll have to import all the tapes and recreate the catalogue by doing phase 1 and phase 2 imports on all tapes? correct?
in a recent posting here i found that the phase-1 imports are only valid for one week? so i have to phase 1 and phase 2 within one week? how can i prolong that, because i have to import around 400 tapes :(
do i have to import the tapes on a new 6.5.6 installation first, and then upgrade to 7.5 or can i import the tapes into 7.5 directly? i guess directly works, right?
any help appreciated!
edit: 'old' server is master&media, new server will be master&media, tape library connected
