Before upgrading from 2010 R3 to 2012 need to know if existing RALUS agents will still be able to backup
We currently have several 2010 R3 Backup Servers. 1 Central Administration Server at our Head Office and 14 Managed Media Servers spread out geographically.
I am setting up a new 2012 server which I would like to take over the role of the CAS server and will also operate as our backup server to our NetApp SAN using NDMP. The existing CAS server would then just become a MMS until such time we are in a position to decommission it post migration activities as part of a server virtualization consolidation project.
I need to know what the steps involved are to achieve this, but most importantly we currently use RALUS to in our 2010 environment and I need to know if by moving to 2012 whether it will allow me to continue to backup those servers that are using the RALUS agent using the existing 2010 R3 MMC servers which would be managed by the new 2012 CAS server?
Any input or answers on the above welcome
