Migrate BE server with deduplication storage folder from win 2012R2 to Win 2016

Hi,

Anyone in this forum that has been able to migrate BE16.2 with deduplication Storage folder from win2012R2 to win2016.

I follow same procedure as when I migrate from win 2012R2 to Win2012R.

On the new Win 2016 server I am unable to recreate the Deduplication Storage Folder.

Re: Migrate BE server with deduplication storage folder from win 2012R2 to Win 2016

Hi,

Problem is now solved.

Microsoft does a change in Locals (region and language) going from Windows 2012 to Windows 2016. This affects the Postgresql database.

I used Microsoft Local builder and created new locals based on the win2012 version.

I installed the new locals on windows 2016 server and the postgresql service started successfully.

Thank's for your help in this issue.

Regards

Leif

Check the dedupestorage\log\pdde-config.log

Ensure the username and password for dedupe is the same as earlier.

hi,

I have confirmed pw is correct.

Same scenario moving BE dedup to win2012R2 server works fine.

There should be a pddb folder in the dedupe\log folder. check the log file there to see why postgres is not starting. Take a look at this article as well https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.100038756.html
