Questions about migration from a server to another
I would like to ask You kindly for some suggestions about the migration from a Backup Exec to another as I need to migrate from a fileserver to another the software and the media library.
Actually I run Backup Exec 12 on a Windows Server 2003. Connected to the server with a data cable, there is a robotic media library with 16 tapes inside.
I have some jobs running periodically (day/week/month) and everything is fine.
Now I need to give the fileserver role to another new machine where I have installed Backup Exec 2012.
The hardware installation is not a problem, but I was thinking what could be the best way to migrate the data contained in the "old" Backup Exec to the "new".
I mean, what is the best method to have all the information about the current tapes on the new Backup Exec, so that, if in the future I ever need to restore some files from the previous server contained on the same tapes, I can do it directly from the new "environment"?
Is there a method to export DB info to the new Backup Exec, or is there a basic funcion like an inventory or a catalogue I can run on the new to read these information from the different tapes and have automatically the software aware of the previous situation?
Thank You in advance.
