Upgrade OS of BUE 2010 media server from 2003 32bit to 2008 R2
I've got a 2003 32 bit server running BUE 2010. We are upgrading our Exchange to 2010 and I need to get BUE 2010 on a 64 bit OS. I have a couple questions.
1. Upgrade the OS or do a fresh install? I've always found it better to install fresh. And this is a big jump for the OS.
2. Has anyone done this with Vcb running on the media server? Does Vcb run on a 64 bit OS?
3. What directories do I need to backup on the current 2003 server to recover all my jobs, selection lists, and catalog?
4. If I install fresh and change the name of the BUE 2010 server, what does this do to all the Remote Windows agents? Is the licensing tied to the server name?
