3600 Upgrade - Backups lost?

Hey,

Sorry if this has been posted or is written somewhere but i need to know for sure.

On the 3600 appliance, the upgrade from 2012 to 2014. Will you lose the backups stored on the appliance, and will you still be able to access the 2012 backups after the upgrade?

Thanks.

Hi,

 

You won't lose your backup history (just grab copies of the Data/Catalogs folders before doing the upgrade of the appliance, and assuming it doesn't do this for you!), but BE 2014 is vastly changed from BE 2012, so the chances are good you will have to recreate your backup jobs anyway, so prepare for this.

It won't invalidate the ability to restore your previous backups though, as this information in the BEDB is caried across during the upgrade.

Thanks!
