Upgrade OS for Master Netbackup media server
Master server is currently running Netbackup 6.5.5 on a Windows 2003 R2 x64bit OS.
Upgrade the OS to Windows 2008 x64bit. Then upgrade Netbackup software to 7.0.1.
For the Windows OS upgrade, would it be best to upgrade or do a fresh install of the OS. I prefer to upgrade the OS to reduce amount of work and minimize downtime. A Window Admin stated to me that I should considering a fresh install for OS. All input is greatly appreciated...
