Old Netbackup 6.5 catalog import question

Created: 04 Oct 2012 • Updated: 05 Dec 2012 | 5 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Ok where to start. 

Our old netbackup tape drive died about six months ago... Our staging disks because storage for all the backups.

We have now built a new netbackup server and would like to import the catalog and backup images sitting on the old storage array.

Is it possible to import that staged data "that never made it to tape" from another system into our new system?

If I map the drive letters to be the same and mount all the same folders, is it possible??

Any help would be appreciated...

Regards,

James

Procedure is the same for later NBU versions as well.
 
(Hopefully your current NBU version is 7.x? NBU 6.x support officially ended yesterday.)

The systems are both 6.5.1 and I had a feeling support was done soon, so I'm on my own : -)

You believe this is possible? That's great... I guess I have some reading to do.
