Tech-refreshing master server from Solaris to Linux: same IP address?
We are looking to tech-refresh Solaris 10 Master server to Linux.
I'm looking at this TechNote and I belive it's something we can do with full catalog backup and restore:
Using catalog backup and recovery to transfer NetBackup catalogs between UNIX or Linux master servers as part of a hardware refresh
Prepare the new master server using the same host name and IP address as the old master server (ensure that the conditions stated above are met)
Why is "same IP address" part is important? Is it recorded anywhere in the database?
If we can update DNS and point the same hostname to a new IP address and then clean host cache on all media servers with "bpclntcmd -clear_host_cache" - would that work?
