Oh, where do I start...it has been a little while since my last post, and that is primarily because I volunteered for a new role within our department. My role now allows me to focus 100% of my time on issues that matter to you, and that is exactly what I have been doing since the beginning of the year! It is an awesome opportunity for me (and my peers who joined me), so that you will ultimately reap the benefits of our labor. I can say that there have been many long nights and weekends invested so far, and I know that the final results will yield many satisfied customers. That means more to me than you will ever know! It is the sole reason I volunteered, and it is what motivates me every day. Thank you for being a loyal customer!

It is some new 64 bit monster with Windows 2008 R2, tons of I/O capacity, memory, disk space and more. Then you ask yourself, how do I move Backup Exec’s data from the old server to the new server and keep everything in working order? Time to check the technote database! So you head off to http://support.symantec.com and start doing some queries. You may find this technote:
